Powers want “diamonds for peanuts”: Iran ex-official | Reuters
By Fredrik Dahl
A former Iranian negotiator on Friday dismissed as “diamonds for peanuts” a proposal by world powers that Tehran halt higher-grade uranium enrichment and close an underground nuclear site in exchange for reactor fuel and civil aviation parts.
Hossein Mousavian, now a visiting scholar at Princeton University in the United States, said he did not believe Iran would accept the offer when the two sides hold a new round of discussions in Moscow on June 18-19.
It will be the third meeting since diplomacy restarted in April after a 15-month hiatus.
