Mixed signals on nukes

The week's news at a glance.

Tehran

Iran said this week it’s ready to strike a deal with the European Union on its nuclear program. The E.U. has been trying to devise sufficient incentives, such as technology aid, to persuade Iran to stop enriching uranium. “If the E.U. accepts our right to produce nuclear technology for peaceful purposes,” Iranian President Mohammad Khatami said, “we are ready to assure the world and the E.U. that we will not pursue nuclear weapons.” Iran’s legislature, though, voted unanimously to require that the government resume uranium enrichment. Lawmakers shouted, “Death to America,” as they voted.
