(Japan Economic Newswire Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)MOSCOW, March 9_(Kyodo) _ Iran is prepared to agree to the enrichment of uranium for its civilian nuclear program and subsequent recycling of spent nuclear fuel in Turkish territory, Russia's Itar-Tass news agency reported Thursday.

"Both countries have commitments under international agreements they are determined to comply with. We plan to discuss some proposals for uranium enrichment and spent nuclear fuel processing in the future," the Iranian ambassador to Turkey, Firuz Devletabadi, was quoted as saying.

Devletabadi explained that all issues were being discussed within the framework of efforts for enhancing security in the region and that "the Iranian nuclear program does not have a military dimension," the report said.


This sounds like a great answer to all of the complaints. Iran can have its nuclear fuel while the IAEA watches over in a NATO country. Now watch as Bush balks at this counter proposal.
