Iran parliament passes bill promoting "peaceful use" of nuclear technology

[JURIST] The Iranian parliament [official website] Sunday passed a measure encouraging Iran's government to resume the "peaceful use" of nuclear technology consistent with international law and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). In referring to "provision of the fuel cycle for generating 20,000 megawatts of electricity" the measure appears to envisage the resumption of uranium enrichment, a major bone of contention with the EU and the US.
