Seoul denied the claims of terrorist MKO that a South Korean company had sold nuke materials to Iran, calling the claims “groundless” and “pure lies”. MehrNews Agency, quoting Reuters, reported that South Korea’s “Export Control Licensing and Enforcement Division at South Korea's Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy” has announced that it had cancelled deals with Iran. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and its zillion other false names like MKO, MEK, listed by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organisation and hated by Iranians of all kinds of life, said Tehran had used front companies to obtain the substance, a hydrogen isotope called tritium, which also has civilian uses. However, Du-Ock Beck, director of the Export Control Licensing and Enforcement Division at South Korea's Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy, said the sale never went through. "The government believes such misunderstanding derives from the fact that on Dec. 3 last year a Korean company planned to ship tritium to Iran after initially acquiring the export-controlled but highly versatile substance from France," he said. Beck said the South Korean company had decided not to go ahead with the deal when France asked it to submit documentation on the material's end-user on Dec. 24, 2004. "After conducting an investigation...the Korean government found that no Korean company exported to Iran the substance in question, tritium," Beck said in an e-mail to Reuters. Tritium is used in luminous paint and in testing the safety of drugs.
