Iran has decided to resume unspecified research into nuclear fuel production, but has excluded - for the time - the enrichment of uranium, a top nuclear official said on state television Tuesday. Mohammad Saeedi, Deputy Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said Iran's nuclear program had suffered significantly from its research suspension during the past two and a half years and that it could no longer keep its scientists from proceeding. Saeedi did not say what kind of nuclear fuel research Iran was planning to resume, but he said plans did not include uranium enrichment. The announcement was certain to raise futher concerns in the United States and among its European allies who believe Iran is moving toward production of nuclear weapons. Tehran says the program is for electricity generation.
