Iran opens nuclear site to Mongolia president

TEHRAN--Iran on Monday gave Mongolia's president a tour of its main uranium enrichment plant, the first time that it has opened the site to a foreign leader.

The visit by President Tsakhia Elbegdorj follows a summit of emerging nations in Tehran that Iranian officials said would showcase the failure of Western sanctions to isolate Iran diplomatically.

State TV showed Elbegdorj inspecting centrifuges used to enrich uranium at the facility in the central Iranian town of Natanz. The West says Iran's nuclear program aims at developing weapons technology, but Iran says it is for peaceful purposes.

The broadcast said the leader was able to visit whatever he wanted in the plant. It suggested that Elbegdorj endorsed the Iranian claim.
