Russia and Iran signed a deal Sunday that would deliver nuclear fuel to the Middle East country for the startup of its first reactor a project the United States had for years pushed Moscow to drop, claiming Iran is trying to build a nuclear bomb.
This should ease tensions in the Middle East (notice the sarcasm). Russia continually turns a blind eye to the realities of the region. If war breaks out (between Iran and Israel) and nukes are dropped, history is not going to forgive Russia for this apparent blunder...
"Today, a very important development occurred, and that was the protocol on returning nuclear fuel, which we signed together. In the next few weeks many Russian technicians will arrive in Bushehr" to finish the plant, Rumyantsev said after the signing.
Russia, which helped build the plant, has agreed to provide the fuel needed to run it but only if Iran returns the spent fuel to prevent any possibility Tehran would extract plutonium from it to make atomic bombs. Tehran has agreed to return the spent fuel, but the sides disagreed on who should pay for its return.
My guess is Iran will return the spent fuel--at least a portion of it while continuing research on the "infinite possibilities of nuclear power." I give them several years until a bomb is designed. The only thing that I see halting this progressive nuclear policy would be a preemtive strike or anan earthquake. Selah.
