Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Tuesday during a meeting with the president of Sudan that Iran was ready to transfer its nuclear technology to neighboring countries.
Khamenei made the comments in a meeting with visiting Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who said last month that his impoverished, war-torn country was considering trying to create a nuclear program to generate electrical power.
"Iran's nuclear capability is one example of various scientific capabilities in the country ... the Islamic Republic of Iran is prepared to transfer the experience, knowledge and technology of its scientists," Khamenei told al-Bashir during their meeting.
Al-Bashir congratulated Iran for its success in producing enriched uranium for the first time, saying the achievement was a great success for the world of Islam. "Iran's capability and progress is, in fact, an increase in the power of the Islamic world," al-Bashir said on state-run television.
