VIENNA, Austria, AP -The United States and Europe are ready to compromise with Iran over its nuclear program and have tentatively approved a plan that would allow it to make the precursor of enriched uranium, senior officials and diplomats said Thursday.

The officials and diplomats — who demanded anonymity in exchange for discussing the strategy — said the plan would allow Iran to convert raw uranium into the gas that is spun by centrifuges into enriched uranium. But the actual enrichment would take place in Russia, they told The Associated Press. Depending on its level, enrichment can be used to generate energy or make nuclear weapons.
