Iran seeks changes in uranium plan

Iran seeks changes in uranium plan

State television says Iran will agree to the "general framework" of a U.N.-drafted plan to ship enriched uranium out of the country for processing, but will seek "important changes" in the deal.
The report Tuesday on the state-run channel Al-Alam does not specify the amendments Iran will seek. It says Iran will officially reply within 48 hours.
The plan calls for Iran to ship 70 percent of its enriched uranium abroad for further enrichment. The U.S. and its allies see the deal as a way to at least delay Iran's ability to build a nuclear weapon. Iran denies any intention to build a bomb.
Another Iranian state channel, Press TV, says Tehran is opposed to sending the entire shipment abroad at once, suggesting it wants to do it in stages.
