Kasparov Warns Australia to not Sell Uranium to Russia

Opposition leader Garry Kasparov has an interview coming out tomorrow in Bulletin magazine in which he warns that John Howard of Australia could be in violation of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty if he sells uranium to Russia – uranium which could ultimately end up in the hands of the Iranians:

“Should Australian uranium end up in the wrong hands – and it’s not too far-fetched to suggest that Russia under Putin is already in the wrong hands – Australia will not be able to act innocent or to claim ignorance,” Mr Kasparov said. “You can only be confident that the Kremlin will look out for itself, that they have zero obedience to the rule of law and that all sales are final.”
