    Iran has struck a basic deal to enrich uranium with Russia, Iranian state radio has reported.
    The details have still to be worked out. Tehran claimed a similar deal in February, when a Russian nuclear chief visited Iran.

    Iran's ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Ali Asghar Soltanieh, told Iranian radio he had struck a basic agreement.

    Tehran is under pressure from the UN Security Council to freeze enrichment.

    Mr Soltanieh said the joint enrichment company would operate on Russian soil.
