Iran Readies Offer to Limit Its Nuclear Program (JAY SOLOMON, 10/08/13, WSJ)
Posted by Orrin Judd at October 9, 2013 7:09 PMIran is preparing a package of proposals to halt production of near-weapons-grade nuclear fuel, a key demand of the US and other global powers, according to officials briefed on diplomacy ahead of talks in Geneva next week.Tehran in return will request that the US and European Union begin scaling back sanctions that have left it largely frozen out of the international financial system and isolated its oil industry, the officials said."The Iranians are preparing to go to Geneva with a serious package," said a former Western diplomat who has discussed the incentives with senior Iranian diplomats in recent weeks.
