During talks with the US and five other world powers, Iran surprised high-level negotiators in Geneva on Thursday agreeing to open its newly revealed uranium enrichment plant to international inspection in the next two weeks. It also agreed to send most of its openly declared enriched uranium to Russia to be turned into fuel for a small reactor that produces medical isotopes, senior American and other Western officials said.
The US and Iranian negotiators met for a 45-minute private meeting, the first high-level dialogue between the two countries in 30 years.
Despite the relatively promising outcome, the Obama administration was at pains to strike a cautious tone
