土耳其提出协助调解伊朗核僵局 Turkey Offers Help in Iran Nuclear Standoff

20 April, 2010

伊朗的盟友土耳其提出愿意为联合国和伊朗之间因伊朗核项目而产生的僵局从中斡旋。土耳其外交部长达武特奥卢说,土耳其已准备好在伊朗的铀交换项目中充当中介人。
 
根据这个所谓的“核交换协议”,伊朗将把低浓度浓缩铀出口到国外进一步浓缩并转换为燃料棒。到目前为止,伊朗拒绝接受这项交易,而是提出在伊朗境内进行浓缩和转换。
 
土耳其外长和伊朗外长穆塔基在德黑兰举行联合新闻发布会,土耳其外长呼吁通过外交手段来解决核僵局。由于伊朗的核浓缩活动,美国正在敦促联合国对伊朗实施第四轮制裁。世界大国认为伊朗正在试图秘密研制核武器,但伊朗坚称其核项目是用于和平的民用目的。

Iran's ally Turkey is offering to mediate the stalemate between the United Nations and Tehran over Iran's nuclear program.Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu says his country is ready to play an intermediary role in a uranium exchange program.
 
In a so-called "nuclear swap deal" Iran would export its low-enriched uranium abroad for further enrichment and conversion into fuel rods. Iran has so far rejected the deal proposing instead that the enrichment and conversion take place on Iranian soil.
 
In a joint news conference in Tehran with his Iranian counterpart, Manouchehr Mottaki, the Turkish foreign minister called for a diplomatic solution to resolve the nuclear standoff.The United States has been leading efforts for the U.N. to impose a fourth round of sanctions on Iran for its nuclear enrichment activities. World powers believe Tehran is secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons, but Iran has insisted its program is for peaceful, civilian purposes.
