Less than a week after Wikileaks revealed the level of nervousness amongst regional leaders about Iran's apparent aspirations for nuclear power, the country announced it had produced yellowcake uranium domestically. Just in the past hour, key talks between Iran and world powers on Teheran's disputed nuclear program ended in Geneva, where Iran's negotiator continued to tell world leaders that the country's nuclear ambitions were about power, not weapons. Hugh Sykes, reporter for our partner the BBC, joins us for reactions from the region to the recent news concerning Iran's nuclear developments.
