Summary of Iran Stories in Today&apos;s BroadcastsBehnam NateghiSunday, April 04, 2004 <b>US Imposes Sanctions on 13 Firms from 7 Countries for Arms Deals with Iran</b> • “Pursuant to the Iran Nonproliferation Act of 2000, the US imposed penalties on 13 companies that engaged in providing prohibited items to Iran. Those companies include five Chinese, two Macedonian, two Russian and one from Belarus, one from North Korea, one from Taiwan, and one from the United Arab Emirates,” US State Department Spokesman Adam Ereli said. The penalties apply to companies, not their respective governments, he added. The companies, he said, had transferred to Iran, since 1999, items with the potential of making a material contribution to Iran&apos;s missile or nuclear programs. Twenty-three companies have been subjected to US sanctions since the law took effect. • In a statement issued in Moscow on Saturday, the Russian foreign ministry criticized the US for censoring two Russian companies. • The United Arab Emirates closed the Dubai-based computer consulting company SMB. The US had accused the company of helping Iran and Libya&apos;s nuclear programs. <b>IAEA Finds More Traces of Enriched Uranium in Iran</b> • The International Atomic Energy Agency&apos;s inspectors found more traces of enriched uranium in Iran at sites other than the two already named – Natanz and Kalaye Electric, where the inspectors last year found traces of uranium that had been enriched to a point where it contained about 90 percent of the fissile uranium atom u-235. Vienna-based sources confirmed that IAEA had discovered uranium traces at other sites, but the UN agency did not comment. Several diplomats said the further discoveries raised the question of whether Tehran has been engaging in more undeclared nuclear activities at sites it has been hiding from the IAEA. • “There is no nuclear centre in Iran which we have hidden from inspectors,” foreign ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said on Sunday. . <b>Tehran City Council Treasurer Threatens Germany on Terrorism Plaque</b> • Tehran would unveil a memorial blaming Germany for the death of thousands of Iranian victims of Iraq&apos;s chemical attacks, if Berlin goes on with its plan to hang a plaque commemorating the 1992 deaths of three Kurdish Democratic Party leaders in a shooting at the Mykonos restaurant. The shooting, according to a German court&apos;s verdict, had been ordered by the Supreme Leader, former president Hashemi Rafsanani and former intelligence minister Ali Falahian. Tehran city council treasurer Reza Vaezi Ashtiani, who voiced the threat on Saturday in Tehran, was echoing Tehran mayor Mahmoud Ahmadnezhad&apos;s letter last week to Berlin mayor. A Berlin district mayor said the unveiling of the plaque will take place at the Mykonos restaurant on April 20, as scheduled. Trigger man Kazem Darabi, a former intelligence ministry agent, is serving a life sentence in a Berlin jail for the shooting. (Shirin Famili) <b>Interior Ministry Threatens Afghan Refugees With Deportation</b> • In a statement issued on Saturday, the interior ministry told the Afghan refugees “for the last time” to leave Iran voluntarily. The statement was issued after 56 countries pledged to give $8.2 billion in reconstruction aid to Afghanistan. The interior ministry said the Afghans who overstay their visas will be deported by force. More than 1.5 million Afghans are believed to be living in Iran. <b>Foreign Minister To Attend Caspian Talks In Moscow</b> • Foreign minister Kamal Kharrazi will arrive in Moscow on Monday to attend a conference of foreign ministers of the Caspian Sea littoral states, according the official news agency IRNA. Foreign ministers of Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan will discuss division of the Caspian resources, according to Russian envoy to the talks deputy foreign minister Viktor Kalyuzhni. <b>Conservative Mayor Clashes With Culture Ministry On Book Fair</b> • Citing traffic problems, Tehran&apos;s conservative mayor Mahmoud Ahmadpour offered to split the culture ministry&apos;s annual book fair into two separate locations. Book fair organizer, the publisher&apos;s union, said it would withdraw if, according to the municipal government&apos;s plan, foreign publishers&apos; exhibits were from the Iranians. “The problem is that the book fair is not just an exhibit, but is a very big book store, where readers can find books they do not see in their local bookstores,” publisher <b>Jafar Homai</b>, head of the Tehran-based Nashr-e Ney publishing house, tells <b>Radio Farda</b>. (Nima Tmadon) <b>Domestic Repression, International Reconciliation</b> • Repression goes on while Iran seeks friendship with the West, London daily the <i>Observer</i>&apos;s Dan De Luce reports from Tehran, in an article about student activist Ahmad Batebi, who was sentenced to 15 years in prison for taking part in the July 1998 uprising, after his picture holding up the bloodstained tee-shirt of a fellow demonstrator appeared on the cover of the <i>Economist</i> magazine. <b>Majles Calls for Investigation of Post-Election Violence</b> • The Majles approved several resolutions today, in the first day of business after the two-week New Year holidays, calling for separate investigations into post-election violence in Firouzkouh, Fereydounkenar and several other towns. In a softly toned speech, Majles speaker Mehdi Karrubi said unlike his reformist colleagues, he accepts the elections&apos; results. Reformist MP Mohammed-Reza Tabesh said deliberations on the MPs&apos; resignations have been removed from the Majles agenda to make room for the government&apos;s fourth five-year economic development plan. More than 130 reformist MPs turned in their resignations last February to protest against the Guardians Council&apos;s bans on 2,500 reformist candidates. It appears that the two-week New Year holidays have cooled down the MPs, <b>Radio Farda</b> broadcaster <b>Siavash Ardalan</b> says. <b>Program to Test Teaching English in Elementary Schools</b> • The Tehran educational district will test the teaching of English language to elementary school students. “It is not so good to confuse first-grade students with two languages, Tehran high schools English teacher <b>Mahtab Safari</b> tells <b>Radio Farda</b>.

Through the International Red Cross, Canada has provided $2 million in earthquake relief to Bam, he adds. The survivors lack most basic necessities, he adds.
