According to an article by the New York Times, Iran pledged to meet the deadline and suspend its Uranium enrichment program. The United States and Europe have been pressuring Iran over its program which Iran insists is for the purpose of generating electricity only, and not for the development of Nuclear Weapons.

Iran to Suspend Uranium Enrichment Today
"The suspension will begin tomorrow," the Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hamid Reza Assefi, told journalists. "We have said that we will suspend our enrichment activities, and we will do it."

Iran agreed earlier this month with Britain, Germany and France to suspend its uranium enrichment program in return for economic benefits. The country said it would halt production on Nov. 22 in a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency, which will meet Thursday to decide whether to send Iran's case to the United Nations Security Council for possible sanctions.
