Iran Rejects Nuclear Deal - Reports

Western sources have told Radio Israel that Iran has informed IAEA that it has formally rejected the proposed nuclear deal worked out in Vienna last month. Under the compromise, Iran would have shipped most of its low-grade enriched uranium to Russia and France in return for higher-grade fuel required for its research reactor in Tehran.

London-based Al Hayat also reported today that French President Nicolas Sarkozy has told the visiting Syrian President Bashar Assad on Friday that in the absence of a nuclear agreement, Israel may strike Iranian nuclear facilities.
