Highly enriched uranium in Iran of little significance: ElBaradei

Tehran, May 14, IRNA
Head of the UN nuclear watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei said on Sunday he believes existence of highly enriched uranium in an Iranian atomic site was of little significance at the current juncture.

Arabic TV station Al Jazeera on Sunday quoted the International Atomic Energy Agency chief as saying research is still underway to find the source of contamination.

The source of contamination may have originated from machines that were imported to Iran, ElBaradei said, adding time is still needed to reach a conclusion in this respect.

He stressed Iran's right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and added a balance between Iran's nuclear rights and concerns of the international community would not be created through verbal disputes, but rather dialogue would be the solution.
