Bolivia denies plan for uranium exploitation with Iran

The Bolivian government on Sunday denied having a strategic alliance with Iran to explore and exploit uranium in Bolivia.

Bolivian Economy Minister Luis Arce dismissed media reports that Bolivia had launched joint actions with Iran to exploit uranium.

“The uranium issue is not on the agenda, neither in any agreements. We have not decided on anything about uranium and still we do not have conditions to do it. We do not have any plan for this issue,” Arce said.

Arce went on to say that although his country has mining agreements with Iran, they do not have anything to do with uranium.

He regretted that some politicians from the opposition and media reports tried to describe the Bolivian-Iranian ties as a threat to world peace.
