Iran has taken preparatory action to start up a uranium conversion plant it needs to fulfil an interim nuclear agreement reached with six world powers last year before the accord expires this month, diplomatic sources said.Iran says its activities are entirely peaceful and want crippling sanctions lifted as soon as possible.Under the initial accord that runs for six months until July 20, Iran is supposed to convert a large amount of low-enriched uranium gas into an oxide form that would be less suitable for processing into nuclear bomb material.With time running short, the issue is closely watched by diplomats monitoring Iran's compliance with the November accord.IAEA reports have shown that Iran is meeting all the other requirements under the interim agreement.Experts say Iran potentially has enough of this kind of uranium gas for a few nuclear weapons if enriched much further.
