Iran's Uranium Enrichment to take place in Russia?
Have Iran and Russia reached partial agreement over the enrichment issue?
BUSHEHR, Iran (Reuters) - Iran has reached a "basic" agreement with Russia on a joint venture to enrich uranium and will continue talks in coming days, Iran's nuclear chief Gholamreza Aghazadeh said on Sunday.
It was unclear what this basic agreement involved. The original Russian proposal had been for Iran's uranium to be enriched in Russia, allaying Western fears that the atomic fuel could be diverted into a weapons program. (more, Reuters)
Other sources mention the possibility of Iranian personnel carrying out the enrichment task inside Russia. This could be an acceptable compromise solution.
