Slowdown Seen in Iran’s Nuclear Program – washingtonpost.com

Slowdown Seen in Iran’s Nuclear Program – washingtonpost.com: “After boasting of rapid progress for months, Iran has slowed expansion of a controversial uranium enrichment program that can be used both for peaceful nuclear energy and to develop weapons, according to the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog agency.
Mohamed ElBaradei, chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said yesterday that U.N. inspectors detected the change during a visit to Iran’s underground enrichment facility at Natanz last week. ‘Without going into detail, you could say that there is a fairly marked slowdown. It is not a full-size freeze, but it is a marked slowdown’ in launching new centrifuges that spin at high speeds to refine uranium into fuel, ElBaradei told reporters in Vienna.”
