Enrichment suspension is central to Iran deal - US

Written by: Staff

WASHINGTON, June 7 (Reuters) Iran's willingness to suspend nuclear enrichment is central to the major powers' proposed deal and Tehran would have to maintain that suspension throughout any negotiations, US State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said today.

McCormack refused to say if the deal includes a provision by which Iran might eventually be allowed to resume enrichment on its territory but told Reuters suspension is a ''firm condition'' of the major powers' offer to begin negotiations and ''that condition would have to hold throughout any potential negotiations.''
