Whether it’s the one the United States, France, Russia and the International Atomic Energy Agency are offering is a different story. But the Iranian “president” has told state TV, in advance of a formal response expected to come Friday, that the basis for cooperation on the nuclear question is in place. The New York Times:

“Fortunately, the conditions for international nuclear cooperation have been met,” Mr. Ahmadinejad said. “We are currently moving in the right direction and we have no fear of legal cooperation, under which all of Iran’s national rights will be preserved, and we will continue our work.”

An Iranian hardline newspaper has indicated that the regime wants two changes to the offer, which, as it stands, would send about 75 percent of Iran’s low-enriched uranium to Russia and France for processing into a state basically unsuitable for nuclear weapons. Experts believe that would add a year to the time it would take Iran to build a bomb. But Iran, according to the paper, will ask to stagger the shipments of uranium and for immediate weapons-unsuitable uranium shipments into Iran to power a medical-research reactor. The Times says that those changes may “undermine the deal.” We’ll have an idea tomorrow about whether that’s a gambit; what the Iranians will say; and how the United States and its allies will respond.
