WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- With Iran refusing US demands that it gut its uranium enrichment program, the two sides are now discussing a new proposal that would leave much of Tehran's enriching machines in place but disconnected from feeds of uranium, diplomats told The Associated Press Saturday.
The talks have been stalled for months over Iran’s opposition to sharply reducing the size and output of centrifuges that can enrich uranium to levels needed for reactor fuel or weapons-grade material used in the core of nuclear warheads. Iran says its enrichment program is only for peaceful purposes, but Washington fears it could be used to make a bomb.
Time is running out before a Nov. 24 deadline and both sides are eager to break the impasse. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.timesofisrael.com/diplomats-iran-receptive-to-softened-nuke-proposal/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
