Envoy: Tehran open to nuclear compromise

Envoy: Tehran open to nuclear compromise - Yahoo! News:

VIENNA, Austria - Key U.S. allies are debating the idea of a nuclear compromise with Iran that would call for only a partial freeze of Tehran's uranium enrichment program — a stance that could put them at odds with Washington, officials said Friday.

The officials — U.S. and European diplomats and government employees — told The Associated Press that the deliberations among senior British, French and German decision-makers were only preliminary and that no conclusions had been drawn.

Germany was supportive, France opposed and Britain noncommittal, they said.

'Nothing is on paper,' said one European diplomat, describing the tentative plan as a 'freeze for peace.'
