Washington and Tehran have allegedly came a step closer to agreeing on shipping part of Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile to Russia, AP reports citing diplomatic sources. However, US sanctions, some believe, are hampering any final settlement.
According to two diplomatic sources who spoke to the Associated Press, the December round of nuclear talks produced a “catalogue of areas of potential accord”, while outlining differing approaches to remaining stick points.
One of the breakthroughs, sources say, comes as Iran allegedly “tentatively agreed” to transport a large portion of its uranium stockpile to Russia for conversion into reactor fuel. The P5+1 group, namely United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, and France, plus Germany, is scheduled to meet the Iranian delegation in Geneva on January 15.
