Nuclear Proliferation in Latin America
Advertisements [?]
Was checking out the on online German publications to read up on Germany's role in the new EU trillion dollar bank bailout. Came across this Der Spiegel, Is Brazil Developing the Bomb?

"In October 2009, the prestigious American periodical Foreign Policy published an article titled "The Future Nuclear Powers You Should Be Worried About." According to the author, Kazakhstan, Bangladesh, Burma, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela are the next candidates -- after Iran -- for membership in the club of nuclear powers. Despite his interesting arguments, the author neglected to mention the most important potential nuclear power: Brazil."

It's the first time I've heard of this scenario.

The Tehran Times reports, Lula, Erdogan to discuss nuclear fuel swap proposal in Iran

"According to diplomatic sources, Brazil and Turkey have drawn up a joint proposal for a nuclear fuel swap and this proposal will be the cornerstone of talks between Da Silva, Erdogan, and Iranian officials, the Mehr News Agency reported.

Other diplomatic sources have said that based on the proposal, the Iran-Turkey border will be the location for the nuclear fuel exchange, which will be conducted under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency."
