The Obama administration and its European allies plan to open new negotiations with Iran by demanding ultimate dismantling of a recently completed nuclear facility deep under a mountain, said US and European diplomats.


They are also calling for a halt in the production of uranium fuel that is considered just a few steps from bomb grade, and the shipment of existing stockpiles of that fuel out of the country, diplomats said.

That negotiating position will be the opening move in what Obama has called Iran’s “last chance” to resolve its confrontation with the UN and the West diplomatically. The hard-line approach would require the country’s military leadership to give up the Fordo enrichment plant outside Qum.
