The article reports that Iran has launched a global controversy over its nuclear program. The U.S. and other Western nations fear that Iran is attempting to build nuclear weapons, although Iran maintains that it intends to use nuclear technology for peaceful means. The controversy centers around Iran's uranium enrichment program, a method of producing the fuel that nuclear power plants use to generate electricity, which can also be used to make nuclear weapons.
