Iran's president says he is withdrawing a proposal made in 2005 for an international consortium to enrich uranium - the fuel for both nuclear bombs and power plants - inside his country. "This proposal is no longer on the table," Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an interview published Tuesday by respected French daily Le Monde. "But if others formulated it again, we would study it - under one condition: that the Iranian people's right to enrich uranium be preserved," the Iranian leader said. He first made the consortium proposal at the UN General Assembly. He said then that Iran "is prepared to engage in serious partnership with private and public sectors of other countries in the implementation of uranium enrichment programs in Iran."
