CNS Experts Quoted in AP Story on Iran’s Nuclear Imports
March 1, 2010
Two experts from the Monterey Institute’s James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) are quoted in an Associated Press article about Iran’s acquisition of sensitive nuclear equipment that is being syndicated across the globe. The story traces the sale of pressure transducers – vital for uranium enrichment – by a Swiss manufacturer to a company in Taiwan, which resold them to a counterpart in China, which then sold them to an industrial manufacturing firm in Iran. Ferenc Dalnoki-Veress and Stephanie Lieggi of CNS are both quoted in the story, which has been picked by news outlets across the globe, including the Boston Globe, Business Week, CBS News, the International News of Pakistan, the San Francisco Chronicle, Time magazine, the UK Guardian, the Washington Post, and Yahoo News India
