Iran offers to share nuclear know-how with Algeria
TEHRAN, Nov 28 (AFP) Nov 28, 2006
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has offered to share Tehran's nuclear expertise with Algiers, in a meeting here with Algerian energy minister Shakib Khalil, the press reported Tuesday.
"We are ready to share our experience in different domains including peaceful nuclear technology with Algeria," the government daily Iran quoted Ahmadinejad as saying in a Monday meeting with Khalil.
Algeria is a member of the Non-Aligned Movement, which supports Iran's civilian nuclear activities -- feared by the West to be a cover for secretly developing nuclear weapons.
Oil-rich Iran denies the allegations, saying it only wants to generate electricity.
World powers have been debating a draft UN resolution that would impose limited sanctions on Iran over its failure to comply with an earlier UN resolution on halting uranium enrichment.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
