US working to revise nuclear deal with Iran

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is working to revise a uranium enrichment deal with Tehran that collapsed last year in order to create a confidence building step as part of talks it hopes to reconvene next month.
This time the US is seeking to use leverage from the sanctions imposed this summer by the UN, EU, Congress and others in diplomatic talks with Iran, stalled since the proposed enrichment deal fell apart.
“It’s important to note that the proposal would have to be updated reflecting ongoing enrichment activity by Iran over the ensuing year,” State Department spokesman PJ Crowley said. “We still think the concept has a potential value, so we would be interested in continuing to pursue that with Iran if Iran is interested.”
