Iran and U.S. send positive signals on nuclear talks


www.reuters.com

Iran has given an assurance that it would stop enriching uranium to 20 percent purity if world powers agreed to a proposed nuclear fuel swap, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told reporters in Istanbul.

The offer, conveyed to Davutoglu on Sunday, could bode well for an expected resumption of talks in September between Iran and major powers on the Islamic Republic's atomic program, which Tehran says is for peaceful purposes and not for bombs.

Asked about Davutoglu's comments, the U.S. State Department said Iran had often sent mixed signals but that the United States was "fully

Not.

Not sure what exactly is the news here. Iran agree in May to do the swaps, and I'm not aware of any points at which they said they would not resume talks? I may have missed a day somewhere. Oh, wait...then there's this...


A U.S. official said Iran may be trying to "have their cake and eat it too," by swapping some low enriched uranium for nuclear fuel while continuing to enrich at some level.

"A lot depends on the details," of what Iran is willing to do, he added, saying the West had responded coolly to Iranian initiatives earlier this year because they seemed designed to stymie U.N. Security Council sanctions that passed in June.

"Now that that process is completed, if Iran wants to engage on these subjects we are more than happy to have that conversation," the official said.


But it was a cheerful headline, and it might mean something someday.

They should make their own nuclear power plants but under especial UN surveillance. If they manage to run it well and dandy for a year, it proves they are responsible enough and should be permitted to do what they want. If they have a nuke, it means no war. So pretty much everywhere, it's going to be hot until they have one.

This is not good news for the powers that want war,Iran has some smart cookies playing the world opinion game and they realise how public opinion is a valuable tool .I assume when its said they can have their cake and eat it too they are not referring to yellowcake.

This is the proposal Iran agreed to in May and was rejected by the US.

Good idea, Gorman...that's one compromise, but it sure doesn't seem as if the U.S. really wants to do that.

Round and round indeed...what I'd give to know exactly which U.S. spokesperson said the things about mixed signals and cake...bet that was someone from the PNAC/neocon/Zionist faction person...the CFR, I believe is on the other side, trying to bail us out of the ME.

And I so agree about the smart cookie...Ahmadinejad is actually pretty brilliant at getting the world to focus on what's really going on there. I'm on record saying this often...for years now, even though I take a lot of flack for it...this ain't his first rodeo. Methinks some fibs are being exposed.

And, yes, gem-man. I believe they were even ready to ship to Turkey about two weeks ago. Not like this is exactly new news, but it's promising. I'm sure we'll hear more tomorrow...as we go round and round.
