Ahmadinejad has made an agreement with the leaders of Brazil and Turkey to swap nuclear fuel, similar to the arrangement that fell apart last fall. Laura Rozen reports:

[O]ne Washington Iran expert, noting that this weekend’s diplomatic meetings involved Iran’s Supreme Leader, said this time may be different. That signals that Khamenei "is endorsing the deal," the National Iranian American Council's Trita Parsi said, adding it may reduce the bouts of Iranian domestic political infighting that have plagued earlier rounds of negotiations that failed to hold up. "That means this is no longer Ahmadinejad's nuclear deal, this is Khamenei's nuclear deal."

Scott Lucas is updating with developments. Gregg Carlstrom contends that the new agreement, which still has to get the approval of the US, Russia, France, and the IAEA, "will almost certainly stall the current U.S.-led push for another round of economic sanctions against Iran."
