    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad To Visit Benin, Ghana and Niger On Sunday

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will leave on Sunday for a visit to Benin, Ghana and Niger, the world's fourth-largest uranium producer, the Fars news agency reported.

    He will meet the presidents of the three countries and sign agreements to develop economic and political relations, Fars said without providing details.

    Ahmadinejad is to arrive in Benin on Sunday afternoon on an official visit in his capacity as chairman of the Non-Aligned Movement of countries, the country's foreign minister, Nassirou Arifari Bako, told AFP.

    "Education, agriculture and, above all, energy" will be on the agenda, the minister said.

    The Iranian president then heads to Niger on Monday for a two-day visit, the government in Niamey said.

    "He will lead a large delegation and both our nations will discuss cooperation and means of strengthening it," Iran's ambassador told reporters after a meeting with Niger's President Mahamadou Issoufou.



    Clearly Iran hasn't backed down from their wish to develop nuclear weapons, no?

    I really don't understand what the commotion is about. It means nothing. It would take years if not longer to develop anything so as to close to a nuclear arsenal.

    Just goes to show how useless the UN's 'sanctions' are as a punishment/deterrent. Hasn't worked with N.Korea, won't work with Iran.

    North Koreas weapons are decades behind being useful to anyone though, Id be more concerned about the Russians helping out... their atomic weaponry was always rather grand... take their 100mt bomb for instance, enough to reduce a county to a smoking hole quite happily :rolleyes:

    Of course their weapons are. But I was under the impression that North Korea had already obtained nuclear material (i.e. enriched uranium); their problem was just that they hadn't gone the full way to weaponise it (i.e. successfully have the material in rockets etc)?
