ABSTRACT
The article reports that Russia and Iran are considering a deal whereby Iran would send its growing stocks of low-enriched uranium (LEU) to Russia for conversion into reactor fuel rods. Russian will have to balance goals in their relations with Tehran, such as supporting nonproliferation efforts, averting war, maintaining regional security, minimizing sanctions, enhancing Moscow's diplomatic leverage.
