Iran's senior lawmakers have rejected a UN-backed plan to ship much of the country's uranium abroad for further enrichment. The move raises further doubts about the likelihood Teheran will approve the deal. Alaeddin Boroujerdi, who heads the parliament's National Security Committee, told the semi-official ISNA news agency Saturday that the legislature is totally against shipping low enriched uranium abroad in return for nuclear fuel. Kazem Jalali, another senior lawmaker, said that there is no guarantee on receiving the fuel even if Iran sends its uranium.
