The U.S. and Israel can't manage to get Iran cornered.
Iranian nuclear chief Gholamreza Aghazadeh said a basic agreement had been reached Sunday with Russia for the establishment of a joint uranium enrichment venture.Dang!
Russia has said that its enrichment offer was contingent on Iran resuming a moratorium on domestic enrichment, but Iranian officials have rejected such a link and in the past insisted on their right to a domestic program.Oh, good!
Asefi reiterated that Iran would continue its nuclear fuel research activities and would not give in its nuclear right under pressure and the "bullying language."Desperate times call for desperate measures. Expect some extra-bullying language to emerge from the March 6th IAEA meeting.
