Russia to Enrich Uranium for Iran

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says Iran and six world powers have reached a deal for Russia to enrich uranium for an Iranian "research" reactor.

Lavrov says the agreement was reached in last week's talks in Switzerland and is still tentative. Details of the deal are to be hammered out in the coming weeks.
