Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks.

President Robert Mugabe set elections for July 31, saying he was complying with a ruling of the Constitutional Court. The request from the Southern African Development Community (SADC) supports the argument of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, who says more time is needed for democratic reforms to be implemented under the country's new constitution.
The 15-member Southern African Development Community said it has asked Zimbabwe's government to ask the Constitutional Court to extend the poll date beyond July 31. SADC did not specify a new election date, and there has been no clear date from Zimbabwean officials.
"What summit recommended was in recognizing that there was a need to give more time," said SADC Secretary-General Tomaz Salomao, speaking at Saturday's summit in Mozambique's capital. "It was agreed that there is a need that the government of Zimbabwe engage the constitutional court to request for more time beyond the deadline of 31st of July.rdquo;
But it remains to be seen whether President Mugabe, who is well-known for his trenchant opposition to being told what to do, will heed the request. ...
