TEHRAN, Iran – State TV says Iran wants to buy nuclear fuel it needs for a research reactor rather than accept a U.N.-drafted plan to ship much of its uranium to Russia for further enrichment.
Friday's report quotes an unnamed source close to Iran's negotiating team as saying Tehran is waiting for a response to its proposal to buy nuclear fuel for the reactor, which is used to make radioactive medical isotopes.
Iran's response will come as a disappointment to the U.S., Russia and France, which all endorsed the U.N. plan Friday. The three countries formulated the draft plan in three days of talks with Iran in Vienna that ended Wednesday.

Not suprising to me at all. This is just another stall tactic by the lunatics in charge of Iran. North Korea has been the leader in stalling for a while but Iran is taking the lead while we sit around and get nothing done.
Start the bombing already so we can move on to the next crisis. I am getting bored with Iran. We are either going to stop them OR we are not going to stop them but there is no reason to prolong this inept process.
President Obama’s policy of diplomatic engagement with Iran is close to collapse as Tehran backtracks on a crucial deal aimed at cutting its stockpiles of nuclear fuel.
Britain, France and Israel believe that Iran has all the know-how it needs to build a bomb and that weaponisation studies have continued despite Tehran’s insistence that it halted them years ago.
The IAEA has called Western intelligence on weaponisation “compelling”
