Iran weighs compromise at nuclear conference

May 7, 2007 12:47

Iran's delegation consulted with its government Monday on whether to opt for compromise at a 130-nation nuclear meeting or to continue opposing language of the conference agenda, at the risk that the gathering could end in failure. At issue is Teheran's refusal to accept a phrase calling for the "need for full compliance with" the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. That position has delayed adoption of the agenda since the conference opened a week ago. Teheran argues the language could lead to its becoming a target at the meeting because of its refusal to heed UN Security Council demands to cease uranium enrichment and other parts of its nuclear program that could be used to make nuclear weapons.
