Iran and nuclear enrichment
The Denver Post article "Iran: We're in nuke club" discusses Iran's claim that it has enriched uranium, the first step in developing nuclear weapons. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice responded to this statement today, stating "I do think that the Security Council will need to take into consideration this move by Iran and that it will be time when it reconvenes on this case for strong steps to make certain that we maintain the credibility of the international community on this issue" (From remarks before meeting with Equatorial Guinean President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo).
