Iran Wants To Discuss Nuclear Fuel Deal With U.N. Security Council

Iran's foreign minister says Tehran wants to discuss a nuclear fuel deal with U.N. Security Council members.

The minister's remarks reflect a new push by Iran to revive talks with the international community. The talks halted after Iran last year rejected a U.N.-backed plan that offered nuclear fuel rods in exchange for Iran's stock of lower-level enriched uranium. The swap would have curbed Tehran's capacity to make a nuclear bomb.

State radio is quoting the official as saying that Iranian delegations will "visit China, Russia, Lebanon and Uganda within the next 10 days to pursue talks."

The minister says Iran wants direct talks with all Council members except one, with which it will pursue indirect talks. He likely meant the U.S. since Tehran and Washington don't have diplomatic relations.

    I have a serious question. Why are there so many churches saying we have to support Israel? Polically and strategically, I see why, but as for a religious reason. Chrisitans are God's chosen people now, a spiritual Israel, the physical country, Jewish believers are not Gods chosen people anymore.
