Western officials: Iran interested in deal on nuclear program

US and Western officials said that Iran has started to slow down its uranium enrichment efforts and may be signaling that it wants to avoid a direct confrontation over its nuclear program, the New York Times reported.


According to the report, evidence began emerging last summer that the Iranians were diverting a significant portion of their medium-enriched uranium for use in a small research reactor, converting it into a form that cannot easily be used in a weapon. (Ynet)
