Tehran Offers Nuclear Compromise

Unconfirmed reports from Tehran indicate that Iran has offered to freeze its uranium enrichment activities at the current level if the UN refrains from adding new sanctions.

Iran analysts do not expect the offer to end the nuclear standoff with the West. At its current level, Iran can still enrich enough uranium to be of major concern.

The Iranian ambassador to Brussels today delivered Iran’s response to Javier Solana, EU foreign policy chief. Solana is expected to meet with Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, in mid-July. The exact date and place for the meeting has not been announced.

Iran’s offer to freeze enrichment at its current level is believed to be the highlight of its response delivered today to Solana.
