Question of the Day
Iran to increase output of nuclear fuel
TEHRAN | An Iranian lawmaker dealing with foreign policy said Sunday that Iran will increase its production of nuclear fuel despite a proposed resumption of talks with major powers over its disputed uranium enrichment program.
Iran probably will try to blunt international pressure on it to curb enrichment once it resumes talks with the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. Agreements on the venue and agenda have not been reached.
“Iran will increase the production of nuclear fuel to secure its needs,” Esmail Kowsari, a member of parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency. No details were given.
Abbas vows no talks without building freeze
Mr. Abbas‘ position complicated already troubled American efforts to restart peace talks. Israeli hard-liners say they won’t accept the proposed 90-day moratorium on settlement construction in the West Bank if it includes East Jerusalem.
The Palestinians say there can’t be peace talks if Israel continues to build homes in captured territories where they want to establish an independent state. In Cairo on Sunday, Mr. Abbas said any construction freeze must include East Jerusalem “first and foremost.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that he would bring the issue of a renewed slowdown before his Cabinet only after the U.S. lays out the details in writing.
