U.S. to Give Iran Nuclear Technology
In a major concession, the United States is prepared to provide Iran with some nuclear technology if it stops enriching uranium, diplomats said Tuesday. The offer was part of a package of incentives presented to Tehran Tuesday by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, said the diplomats, who were familiar with the proposals. The diplomats demanded anonymity in exchange for discussing details of the offer, which was agreed on last week by six world powers in a bid to resolve the nuclear standoff with Iran.
That’s the entirety of the AP report at the moment. Details could change my mind about this.
My initial reaction is quite profane. Essentially, WTF with some extra Fs thrown in for good measure.
This sounds eerily similar to the Agreed Framework the Clinton administration negotiated with North Korea in 1994 under similar circumstances. It would not be unfair to say that agreement was somewhat less than successful.
UPDATE: A substantially revised and extended version of this is now up at Human Events Online.
