Iran Offers More Monitoring to Prove It’s Nuclear-Weapons Free

Iran proposed tighter monitoring of its nuclear program within a six-month period to verify it’s not pursuing atomic weapons during the first talks with world powers since it pledged to end a decade-old standoff.

Iran unveiled its offer during negotiations today at Geneva’s Palais des Nations with world powers including China, Russia, France, Germany, the U.K and U.S. It’s the first round of nuclear negotiations since Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, and U.S. President Barack Obama spoke by phone last month, marking the highest level contact between the two countries since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
