LONDON (Reuters) – Western powers believe Iran is running short of raw uranium for its nuclear program and are urging producer nations not to sell to Tehran, The Times reported Saturday.
The British newspaper said Britain’s Foreign Office late last year ordered its diplomats in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Brazil — all major uranium producers — to lobby their governments on the issue.
“Countries including Britain, the U.S., France and Germany have started intensive diplomatic efforts to dissuade major uranium producers from selling to Iran,” the newspaper said.
