This article reports that Iran's nuclear programme was high on the agenda at meetings between U.S. President George W. Bush and European allies in February. On President Bush's first trip to Europe since his reelection last November, Iran's nuclear ambitions were high on the agenda for talks with France, Germany and Great Britain, the three countries leading the European Union's negotiations on the issue. It was also an important topic for discussion with Russia, who provided Iran with the expertise to build nuclear facilities in the first place and recently struck a deal to supply it with nuclear material. Iran's inclusion in the "Axis of Evil" in 2001 signaled a shift in the U.S. attitude towards the Republic from antipathy to outright hostility, in the face of credible allegations that Tehran was actively building a nuclear weapons programme.
