  •  Please cite a single example where the IAEA (0+ / 0-)

    has stated a concern about the fact that Iran does low-grade enrichment.  In all cases, the concerns have been regarding Iran's withdrawal from the optional Additional Protocol (but only after sanctions were imposed), some high-level contamination (pdf), possible diversion for military use and related issues.  In no case is the IAEA concerned about civilian grade enhancement itself.  Monitoring the distinction between weapons-grade and civilian-grade U-235 is the reason the IAEA exists.

    As an inspector and someone well versed with the flaws of the NPT, ElBaradei of course has concerns about the implementation of the treaty, but he has said this:

    Iran is very keen to see an affirmation of its right to enrich uranium under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Nobody is questioning this right, what is at stake is confidence-building.
