Pakistan is denying reports that it will send used centrifuge parts to the U.N. nuclear agency for comparison testing.
A spokesman for Pakistan's foreign ministry (Jalil Abbas Jilani) said today (Monday) the reports are "entirely baseless," and told reporters that no centrifuges would be provided to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
The IAEA is trying to identify the origin of highly enriched uranium traces found on equipment in Iran. Tehran says the equipment came from Pakistan.
Experts want to inspect Pakistan's centrifuges to see if they carry uranium traces matching those found in Iran. This would indicate the uranium likely came from Pakistan.
Islamabad acknowledged last week that Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan sold nuclear technology and parts to Iran.
The United States says Iran is enriching uranium to make nuclear weapons. Tehran says its nuclear program is only intended to generate electricity.
