U.S., World: A senior Iranian official dumps cold water on that nuke deal

  • They (the West) tell us: you give us your 3.5 percent enriched uranium and we will give you the fuel for the reactor. It is not acceptable to us. The IAEA is obliged to provide us with the fuel based on the safeguards.
  • Deputy Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Reza Bahonar • Describing why he’s against the agreement the International Atomic Energy Agency worked up to send low-enriched uranium to other countries for further enriching. If it goes through, it could be a huge diplomatic win for the U.S. Word is that Iran might try to work some amendments to the deal, but it could fall flat completely if Iran crosses what the U.S. describes as “red lines” designed to make sure Iran’s not making nuclear weapons. • source
