Iran and Pakistan, Discuss Iran's Nuclear Issues
Iran's and Pakistan's Foreign Ministers meeting in Islamabad today discussed international efforts to dissuade Iran from developing a nuclear fuel enrichment program.
A Pakistan Foreign Ministry statement says that Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri and Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi reviewed Iran's talks with European countries on nuclear issues, and its contacts with the International Atomic Energy Agency.
Pakistan welcomed Iran's agreement last month with Britain, France and Germany, acting for the European Union, to suspend uranium enrichment in exchange for trade, technology and security rewards.
The scientist known as the father of Pakistan's nuclear weapons program, Abdul Qadeer Khan, in February confessed to passing nuclear secrets to Iran.
The two ministers also discussed developments in Iraq, expressing support for a broad-based government there. They also discussed economic matters, and reform of the Security Council at the United Nations.
