MUNICH — Iran might be close to a deal to have uranium enriched abroad, the country’s foreign minister said Friday. But he proposed a condition that might not be acceptable to the United States and other governments that have been trying to negotiate a compromise over Iran’s nuclear program.
Under such an agreement, Iran would send low-enriched uranium to the West and receive higher-grade uranium in return for use in a reactor that would produce isotopes for medical use.
“We are approaching a final agreement that can be accepted by all parties,” said the foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, who spoke before European leaders here at the annual Munich Security Conference.
