August 18, 2004 - In a memorandum of understanding signed on Tuesday in Tehran by South African defense minister Mosiuoa Lekota and the Islamic Republic defense minister Reza Shamkhani, South Africa agreed to provide Iran with uranium, Israeli daily Haaretz reports. The details of the memorandum were not announced, but the Islamic government’s news sources quoted the visiting South African defense minister saying that seeking peaceful nuclear technology was a legitimate right of Iran.
