Iran calls for nuclear review panel

Iran wants a technical panel to review a U.N.-backed plan on enriching the country’s uranium stockpile.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Iran wants a technical panel to review a U.N.-backed plan on enriching the country’s uranium stockpile.

Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki says Iran conveyed its stand to the International Atomic Energy Agency two days ago. Mottaki is on a visit to Malaysia.

The U.N.-brokered plan would require Iran to send about 70 per cent of its low-grade uranium stockpile to Russia in one batch by year’s end for processing to create more refined fuel for a Tehran research reactor.

Mottaki says Monday “it is very much possible to establish a technical commission in order to review and reconsider all these issues.”

The statement could be seen as a softening of Iran’s stand after senior Iranian lawmakers rejected the plan on Saturday.
