concerns and information outlined in refs. A and C into
consideration. However, he reiterated the Thai position that
Iran as a signatory to the NPT has a right to use peaceful
civilian nuclear technology within IAEA parameters. Econoff

grasp the breadth and depth of international concern about
Iran's enrichment activities.
