Zimbabwe To Sell Uranian To Iran - Update

UPDATE 8/12/13:  Zimbabwe officials deny any such deal with Iran. If you can believe them.

Word has it that Zimbabwe is planning on shipping uranium to Iran.  

Gift Chimanikire, the Zimbabwean Deputy Mining Minister, told the Times newspaper that a memorandum of understanding had been signed to export uranium to Tehran, a move likely to prompt alarm in western capitals, particularly in Washington.
A report compiled by the United Nations' nuclear watchdog more than two years ago warned of such an outcome, detailing a visit from Iran's then Foreign and Co-operative Ministers to Zimbabwe to strike a deal, with the Iranians also sending engineers to assess uranium deposits.

The rest here.

So much for sanctions.
