Russia seeks details of secret nuclear past
VIENNA — Moscow has warned Iran that it will not deliver fuel to a nearly completed Russian-built nuclear reactor unless Tehran lifts the veil of secrecy on suspicious past atomic activities, a European diplomat said yesterday.
Separately, a U.S. official told the Associated Press that the Russians are not meeting other commitments that would allow the Iranians to activate the Bushehr nuclear reactor, and suggested the delays were an attempt to pressure Tehran into showing more compliance with U.N. Security Council demands.
Iran kept secret for nearly two decades an effort to enrich uranium.
Mr. Abe seems to be trying to make the foreign minister, who is relatively popular among voters, the “frontman” of the Liberal Democratic Party ahead of the next lower house election, the top-selling Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper reported, without revealing its sources.
Communists reject U.S. nuclear deal
NEW DELHI — Indian communist parties, which shore up the government, rejected a landmark nuclear pact between New Delhi and Washington yesterday, saying it compromised India’s sovereignty and imposed U.S. influence.
In views that almost mirrored those of the right-wing Hindu nationalist opposition, the four main leftist parties called upon Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s coalition not to pursue the deal, details of which were disclosed last week.
But the parties, whose support is key to the survival of the coalition, stopped short of spelling out their strategy if the government pressed ahead, as it is not required by law to seek parliamentary approval.
