Iran wants to change conditions of freeze
Iran is demanding that it be
allowed to operate dozens of centrifuges, although doing so would be banned
under a freeze of uranium enrichment activities it recently agreed to, diplomats
They have asked the IAEA to exempt that equipment from agency seals meant to ensure the enrichment program ！ which can be used to make nuclear weapons ！ is completely at a standstill, one of the diplomats said.
The move comes on the eve of an IAEA board meeting that will examine Iran's compliance to international demands meant to reduce suspicions about its nuclear activities. Among them are calls for a suspension of all enrichment and related activities ！ something Iran agreed to earlier this month in a deal with European negotiators.
