Iran's unspoken nuclear victory

Under a UN-brokered proposal, the United States, France and Russia had planned to sell the much needed fuel to Iran under their own conditions.

Tehran had welcomed the gist of the proposal, but asked for guarantees that the fuel would be delivered in a timely manner, citing previous failures by global powers in their nuclear deals with the country.

They, however, did not deem necessary further assurances.

Iran then moved to update the proposal when in mid-December it offered to exchange 400 kilos of uranium with fuel, under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), on its Kish Island in the Persian Gulf.

World powers were not fond of the new counter proposal either. They insisted that the original draft should be the base of any likely deal.
