Tests appear to back Iran on nuke traces – diplomat – Yahoo! News: “An analysis of Pakistani components for enrichment centrifuges identical to ones Iran bought on the black market appear to back Tehran’s assertion that traces of bomb-grade uranium were the result of contamination, a Western diplomat familiar with the IAEA said.

‘There’s still some final corroboration to go on but all the preliminary analysis does show that the particles seem to have come from Pakistan,’ he said, adding that the final result was unlikely to change as a result of work still outstanding.

This appeared to confirm earlier results, reported by Reuters on June 10, that also suggested Tehran did not produce the highly-enriched uranium itself.

Asked whether this cleared up the contamination issue, the diplomat said: ‘More or less. The contamination issue will never be 100 percent clear.'”
