Iran says could swap nuclear fuel inside Iran


Iran said on Tuesday it was willing to swap low-grade for high-grade uranium but that the nuclear fuel exchange under a U.N.-brokered plan must be carried out on its own territory.

"In order to bring about a constructive interaction, we have declared our readiness for fuel swap, provided it is done within the country (Iran)," foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said.

"We are prepared for a fuel swap even though we do not regard this condition of supplying fuel to the Tehran research reactor through a swap as correct."

Iran said on Monday it had earmarked potential sites for 10 new nuclear enrichment plants, two of which could see construction start this year.
