“Tokyo enrichment proposal goes public during Larijani visit”

“Tokyo enrichment proposal goes public during Larijani visit”
February 24-26, 2010
     With Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani visiting Tokyo, the Nikkei business daily reported on Japan’s proposal to conduct uranium enrichment on Japanese soil. The proposal was made with US approval to Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili in December, and Larijani has indicated Tehran will study the deal. The Japanese government has neither confirmed nor denied the report, which does not cite sources (Nikkei, AFP). Nikkei also reports that US Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg is scheduled to meet with Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada in Tokyo on March 4 to discuss the Iranian nuclear issue (Nikkei).
     Iran also allowed Japanese media to tour its Isfahan plant, an unusual move likely aimed at gaining Japanese support for its nuclear program (Yomiuri Shimbun, Japan Times).
