ABSTRACT
The article talks about nuclear proliferation. The author said that while U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair condemn Iran for its programme, they appear to be pushing ahead with their own nuclear weapon agenda. In January 2006, Iran announced the reactivation of its uranium enrichment programme, drawing vocal condemnation from the West. However, Iran's spiritual leader, Ayatollah Khamenei is against nuclear weapons, while President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated that his government wishes to use nuclear technology for civilian purposes. Convinced that Iran intends to develop weapons, the U.S. and British governments are pressing the United Nations Security Council to impose sanctions.
