The article discusses various issues related to an uranium-conversion plant in Iran. The International Atomic Energy Agency confronted Iran in November 2006 about a secret Iranian research effort called the Green Salt Project. Iran has long maintained that it wants to enrich uranium to generate nuclear power, not to make a bomb.
