Struggling to defend the nuclear negotiation extension with Iran to
Congressional opponents who didn’t like the talks to begin with, the
Obama Administration is claiming major new concessions were made by Iran
to see talks continue.
The Associated Press say it has seen a secret document on the terms
for the next seven months of talks, and that it includes, among other
things, Iran agreeing to snap inspections by the IAEA and to convert much
of its remaining uranium to fuel.
The conversion includes the last 35 kg of more highly enriched
uranium oxide, which Iran was producing for fuel rods for the Tehran
Research Reactor. They’ve agreed to finish the conversion into fuel rods
to eliminate Western claims they could enrich further.
The administration has been presenting the document to Congressional
officials in an attempt to convince them to hold off on new sanctions
which would violate the agreement and would derail the talks.
