Door open for eventual nuclear enrichment by Iran: diplomats

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The major powers' proposal to
resolve the Iran nuclear crisis leaves open the door to Tehran
eventually resuming nuclear enrichment but this could take
years to achieve, western diplomats said on Wednesday.

Details of the proposal have not been officially released
but diplomats told Reuters the final document also offers to
provide Iran with a new facility to stockpile nuclear fuel,
deletes an earlier reference in a draft to guaranteeing Iran's
"territorial integrity" and proposes an informal regional
security forum.
