Chavez says Iran helping Venezuela find uranium

COCHABAMBA, Bolivia (Reuters) – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Saturday Iran is helping his country explore for uranium, but stressed his government would only seek to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

Venezuela says it is working with Russia to develop nuclear energy for nonviolent purposes, and the country’s mining minister said last month Iranian officials were helping to look for uranium, with preliminary tests indicating big deposits.
