TEHRAN (AP) — Iran’s top nuclear negotiator said Tuesday that a Russian proposal could be “a basis to start negotiations” on Iran’s disputed nuclear program.
The proposal calls for the other countries to make limited concessions to Iran for each step it takes toward opening its nuclear program fully to international inspection and giving up activities that could yield nuclear weapons.
“The proposal by our Russian friends can be a basis to start negotiations for regional and international cooperation, specifically in the field of peaceful nuclear activities,” the Iranian negotiator, Saeed Jalili, said on Iranian state television.
