Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday said that Iran is prepared to discuss a potential swap of nuclear fuel

"Our nuclear rights, including the continuation of enrichment, making 20 percent uranium and building nuclear plants are not negotiable," he said.

Ahmadinejad hinted that Iran may export part of its supply of low-enriched uranium as a swap for higher-enriched material which would be used by a medical research reactor which cannot yet produce fuel.
"Cooperating in different fields like a fuel swap, and political, economic and security issues of the world are topics for negotiations," he said.
