Islamabad May Send IAEA Nuclear Parts to Assist Iran Probe
Pakistan's prime minister says Islamabad may send nuclear equipment to the UN's nuclear watchdog to help the agency determine whether Iran has been building an atomic bomb. Shaukat Aziz told reporters in Malaysia today that Pakistan may send centrifuge parts to the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA, under certain conditions.
Aziz's remarks echo similar comments last month by President Pervez Musharraf, who said he was "thinking about sending" the parts.
The IAEA wants the centrifuges to check whether traces of uranium found on nuclear equipment in Iran originated in Pakistan.
Iran blamed the traces on contaminated machinery sold to Tehran by Abdul Qadeer Khan, the Pakistani scientist at the center of a global atomic black market.
