Turkish FM to discuss nu

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is scheduled to meet on Friday with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tabriz, in northwestern Iran. According to an IBA report, the meeting will center on Iran's official rejection of a proposal to send its low-enriched uranium abroad for further processing. Although the original UN-brokered proposal had called for the uranium to be sent to Russia, Turkey had also offered to fulfill the role. Davutoglu, who was visiting Afghanistan, will depart for Iran later on Thursday.
