Iranian state radio reports the country's Guardian Council today approved a bill requiring the government to develop the process for producing nuclear fuel.
Parliament passed the bill on May 15, but it had to be approved by the council, the nation's constitutional watchdog, to become law. Tehran’s state radio said the measure does not require the government to immediately resume the controversial process of enriching uranium. But it must continue its actions toward that goal.
The United States and European Union are concerned that Iran could use enriched uranium to make nuclear weapons. Iran says it only wants to generate nuclear power.
Iran agreed on Wednesday to meet with EU negotiators during the summer for more talks on the nuclear issue.
