The six countries taking part in uranium negotiations with Iran are in agreement over the need to update an offer to send the Islamic Republic's uranium abroad for enrichment, the French Foreign Ministry said Friday, according to AFP.

"There is no disagreement among the six (Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia the United States) on the need to update the offer made to Iran in the autumn of 2009 and there is also no disagreement on the principle and parameters of this update," the ministry said.The six countries proposed in 2009 that Iran transfer 1,200 kilos (roughly 2,600 pounds) of its low-enriched uranium to Russia and after that to France for further enrichment for a Teheran research reactor, reported AFP.

Since then, Iran has increased its uranium stock and the six nations are now collaborating on updated offer, according to Paris.
