(Newser) – Iran has agreed to a draft deal on its nuclear program, the UN's nuclear watchdog announced today. The International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran, the US, Russia, and France had agreed to the deal but gave no details. According to diplomats, however, the agreement would see the country ship out most of its enriched uranium to Russia, stripping Tehran of most of the material it would need to make a nuclear weapon.
