Turkey and Brazil to “clarify” the situation on the Iranian nuclear issue

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner praised Turkey and Brazil for helping to “clarify” the situation on the Iranian nuclear issue, by negotiating the uranium exchange deal in which Iran is supposed to send its low-enriched uranium to Turkey and receive nuclear fuel rods.

Speaking at a press conference in Istanbul following a meeting with his Turkish counterpart, Kouchner said the agreement was only “a partial answer” to the demands put to Iran by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

“Does this prevent the Security Council resolution, I don’t think so. Does it speed it up? Maybe. But I am sure of one thing, it clarifies things a little,” he said.
