My take is that Israeli Attack is just a warning to Iran right before IAEA meeting.

Iran Wants European, Russian Help to Enrich Uranium

Tehran Times (Hardliners' Paper)
May 9th 2004
Iran

TEHRAN (Reuters) -- Iran wants to team up with European states and Russia to produce enriched uranium, hoping that by involving them it can remove fears that it is developing nuclear arms, a senior official was quoted as saying on Friday.

"Europeans are concerned about Iran's uranium enrichment program and feel distrustful towards it," Hossein Musavian, secretary of the foreign policy committee of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, told Russia's Itar-Tass news agency.

Iran and Europe "should jointly build trustful relations, including joint uranium enrichment programs," Musavian said, adding that he planned to raise the idea with Britain, Germany and France in the next two to three weeks. "We could, for example, start talking about setting up a consortium, which would include European countries and Russia, to work together on this program." "Of course this is not necessarily just political chit-chat by the Iranian side at a time when their nuclear program is under so much scrutiny," he said. "But we see it as something rather unlikely to happen, at least in the near future."

IRAN CONFIDENT ABOUT IAEA MEETING

The Foreign Ministry said Iran was confident of escaping censure at next month's UN nuclear watchdog board meeting.

"I am optimistic about the results of the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) next meeting," the official IRNA news agency quoted spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi as saying. "Iran will definitely not be condemned in the next meeting, because Iran has been cooperating with the agency transparently."
