Iran will restart uranium reprocessing activities

Iran will restart nuclear activities, including a key step prior to uranium enrichment, despite a European agreement over its contentious atomic program, which the U.S. insists is designed to build nuclear weapons, outgoing President Mohammad Khatami said Wednesday.

Khatami told reporters that Iran has "no intention to end suspension of uranium enrichment,".

Enrichment is a key process in the nuclear fuel cycle. Uranium enriched to low levels is used as fuel in nuclear power plants to generate electricity, but further enrichment makes it suitable for use in a nuclear bomb.

Iran has said it does not want to make atomic weapons despite the American claims to the contrary, but defends its right to pursue a nuclear program for peaceful purposes, the AP reports.
