The west offers to help Iran purchase medical isotopes


The United States and other nations seeking to restrain Iran’s nuclear ambitions are offering to help the Islamic republic purchase medical isotopes on the international market, administration officials said Tuesday.

The offer, officials said, is meant to persuade Iran to halt its controversial push to produce fuel for a medical research reactor. U.S. officials say Tehran’s enrichment plan — it announced this week that it is producing higher-grade enriched uranium than ever before — is evidence that it is pursuing fuel for a bomb.
