Tehran: In order to set up plant to process the ore into nuclear material, Iran is all set to share nuke-technology with Africa, says Iranian nuclear chief.

Fereidoun Abbasi says Iran has mastered the entire nuclear fuel cycle from extracting uranium ore to producing fuel for reactors and is ready to share the technology. Abbasi's comment was reported by a news agency on Saturday.

The offer appears aimed at touting Iran as a nuclear power that has mastered the technology and is willing to help others create peaceful nuclear programs.

Iran says its program is solely aimed at generating electricity and denies Western accusations that it seeks to build a bomb.
