Diplomats say the United Nations will certify later this week that Iran's ability to make a nuclear bomb has been reduced because it has neutralized half of its material that can be turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium. Iran says it does not want nuclear weapons. But by January, it had amassed nearly enough 20 percent enriched uranium to be able to quickly make a nuclear bomb with further enrichment. Two diplomats told The Associated Press Wednesday that a U.N. nuclear agency report will say that Iran has diluted half of that 20 percent stockpile to less proliferation-sensitive material.
