Bahrain: Iran Racing to Build Bomb

Thursday, 01 November 2007 10:32 PM

In an interview with The Times of London newspaper, Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa became the first Arab leader to directly accuse Iran of seeking nuclear weapons.

“While they don’t have the bomb yet, they are developing it, or the capability for it,” he said.

He also said “the whole region” would be caught up in any military conflict and called on India and Russia to help find a diplomatic solution. “There needs to be far more done on the diplomatic front,” he said. “There’s still time to talk.”

Also Thursday, Saudi Arabia and a consortium of Arab Gulf states invited Iran to produce enriched uranium jointly, where the plant could be properly monitored by international observers.

“We have proposed a solution, which is to create a consortium for all users of enriched uranium to do it in a collective manner that would distribute (nuclear fuel) according to need,” Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said. “We hope the Iranians will accept this proposal.”

He said that the proposed plant would be built in a neutral third country, like Switzerland.
