Iran Counters U.N. Offer
The IAEA announced it has received Iran’s reply to a U.N.-backed proposal to send that country’s enriched uranium abroad to be turned into fuel rods — not weapons. The reply, which remains secret, is expected to agree to the overall framework of the proposal while demanding significant changes.

The UN’s nuclear watchdog says it is hopeful an agreement with Iran can be reached after Tehran’s response to a new offer on uranium refinement.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said it received Iran’s reply to the UN-backed proposal on Thursday.

No details of Iran’s reply have been given but its president said it was ready to co-operate with the proposal.
