Washington, Apr 28 (ANI): The Obama administration has said that they might allow Iran to continue enriching uranium up to five percent purity if it agrees to other United Nation restrictions.
US officials said they would let Iran enrich uranium up to the upper end of the range for most civilian uses, if its government agrees to the unrestricted inspections, strict oversight and numerous safeguards that the UN has been demanding.
According to The Los Angeles Times, a shift in the US position is likely to prompt objections from Israeli leaders, the probable Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, and many members of US Congress.
But a consensus has gradually emerged among US and other officials that Iran is unlikely to agree to a complete halt in enrichment.
Maintaining an unconditional demand that it do so could make it impossible to reach a negotiated deal to stop the country's nuclear program, thereby avoiding a military attack.
The paper quoted a senior administration official, as saying that if Iran fulfills US and other world powers' demands for strict enforcement of UN monitoring and safeguards, 'there can be a discussion' of allowing low-level domestic enrichment. (ANI)
