Iran: Compromise on nuclear disputes possible

Iran on Sunday said disputes over its nuclear program could be settled in the coming weeks if the UN Security Council dropped preparations to debate another round of sanctions against the Islamic Republic and turn over its case to the International Atomic Energy Agency. The announcement by Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini comes after an official in Spain said Iran had pledged to end years of stonewalling and provide answers about past suspicious nuclear activities to the IAEA, the UN nuclear monitoring agency.
