President Mohammad Khatami says talks and negotiations are the only way to resolve Iran's nuclear standoff with the West. Khatami said in Tehran today that his country is ready to assure the world that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons. Earlier today, reports said Britain, France and Germany will offer to support Iranian construction of a light-water nuclear reactor as part of a deal aimed at persuading the country to stop its activities to enrich uranium. Nuclear experts say light-water reactors provide little help in the development of atomic weapons. Enriched uranium can produce fuel for civilian reactors or for nuclear weapons. Iran denies trying to make nuclear bombs.
