New Iran nuclear swap accord `potentially good`: NATO

NATO`s supreme commander said Iran`s agreement on Monday was "a potentially good development."



Washington: NATO`s supreme commander said
Iran`s agreement on Monday the bulk of its enriched
uranium for nuclear fuel in Turkey was "a potentially good
development."

"I think that`s an example of what we all look for,
which is a diplomatic system that encourages good behaviour on
the part of the Iranian regime," said US Admiral James
Stavridis.

Stavridis, the supreme allied commander, said the
agreement struck by Turkey, Brazil and Iran was "a potentially
good development," adding that "obviously we have a million
miles to go."

His positive reaction contrasted with the generally
chilly response by the West, which is pressing the UN Security
Council to approve a tough new set of sanctions against Iran.

Iran is already under three previous sets of UN
sanctions for its refusal to halt its uranium enrichment
program, which Western powers suspect is part of a covert
effort to acquire a nuclear weapons capability.

The agreement signed in Tehran by the foreign
ministers of Iran, Turkey and Brazil commits Iran to
depositing 1,200 kilograms of low enriched uranium in Turkey
in return for fuel for a research reactor.
