The six world powers have offered Iran a new deal in nuclear talks held in Kazakhstan this week, that includes easing sanctions and dropping the demand that the Islamic Republic shuts down its enrichment plant at Fordow, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

Instead, the five members of the UN Security Council and Germany insisted Tehran will suspend uranium enrichment at the plant and take a series of steps that would make it hard to resume producing nuclear fuel quickly, according to the Times.

Furthermore, the six world powers also agreed to allow Iran to keep a small amount of 20 percent enriched uranium for use in a reactor to produce medical isotopes.
