IEA head: Iran can have nuclear energy
The head of the International Energy Agency (IEA), adviser to 26 industrialized countries, said on Thursday there was no reason why Iran should not have nuclear energy.

"I don't see why a country like Iran could not have nuclear as part of its energy mix," IEA Executive Director Claude Mandil said in Paris. The IEA is an advocate of nuclear energy as a way to address future needs without polluting the planet.

"There is no energy reason why it should be denied nuclear," he said, although he added he understood the West's concerns.
