    Looks like maybe a breakthrough in this standoff.

    "If the issue is returned to the International Atomic Energy Agency, we will be ready to allow intrusive inspections," Mohammed Saeedi, Iran's deputy nuclear chief, told state-run television.

    "A likely compromise, say insiders who insist on anonymity, would involve temporary suspension of uranium enrichment by Iran and a possible joint venture with Russia (and some other states like South Africa) to take Iran's uranium hexafluoride gas out of the country and enrich it elsewhere. Iranian scientists would have access to the relevant facilities and technologies in the joint effort. Iran would stick to its NPT commitments and ratify the tough IAEA ‘additional protocol'.

    In return, the West would recognise Iran as a ‘normal' state, and give it security guarantees and a ‘package' of economic incentives, including access to enhanced gas and oil production technologies."
