Iran's parliament backs nuclear work U.S. opposes

Iran's parliament voted on Sunday to oblige the government to develop a nuclear fuel cycle, an action opposed by Washington which fears Iran could be seeking atomic weapons.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is obliged to take action to obtain peaceful nuclear technology including provision of the fuel cycle for generating 20,000 megawatts of electricity," said the lawmakers' motion, which was approved by 188 out of 205 lawmakers present in a debate broadcast live on state radio.
