I have no problem with Iranian nuclear power plants, but we can not allow 1) heavy water reactors , 2) fuel processing or equipment for that, 3) storage of UF3 or UF6, 4) enrichment equipment (such as centrifuges etc.) and 5) heavy water production.
Thus it is OK to have Bushehr pressurized light water reactor, provided there is watertight control of the handling of the fuel and reprocessing outside Iran and that the 40-megawatt heavy-water research reactor at Arak 240 km south of Tehran, and the heavy water production plant there should be destroyed together with other heavy water reactors and enrichment equipment

Are you insinuating that the regime may have other than peaceful reasons for wanting nuclear facilities? tsk, tsk, tsk. They're only concerned about having electricity. ;~ p
