White House Unhappy With Iran Nuke Offer

Saturday, 12 Dec 2009 03:25 PM

 

The White House is expressing unhappiness over Iran's announcement that it is ready to exchange uranium for nuclear fuel.

Such a deal would meet a key demand of a U.N.-sponsored effort to defuse fears over Iran's nuclear ambitions. But instead of shipping most of its uranium abroad for processing before it is returned to Tehran, Iran's foreign minister said Saturday that the material instead would be exchanged in batches.

A senior Obama administration official says that proposal is inconsistent with the U.N. plan.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the issue, urged Iran to accept the U.N. offer to help build confidence in claims that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
