Iran still causing 'concern' despite deal: Britain

17th May 2010, Comments 0 comments

Iran is still "a serious cause for concern" despite a nuclear deal between it, Turkey and Brazil, British junior foreign minister Alistair Burt said Monday.

Burt said Iran should "immediately" inform the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) if it is going to ship some of its low-enriched uranium abroad in a fuel swap deal backed by Turkey and Brazil.

"Iran's actions remain a serious cause for concern, in particular its refusal to meet for discussions of its nuclear program, or cooperate fully with the IAEA, and its decision to start enriching low enriched uranium to 20 percent," Burt added, in a statement issued by the Foreign Office.
