Iran to sign nuclear swap deal with Turkey, Brazil

Leaders from Iran, Turkey and Brazil met on  Monday to discuss a nuclear fuel swap agreement to avoid new sanctions over Tehran's controversial nuclear program, al-Alam television, Iran's Arabic-language satellite television, reported.
  
The deal will be signed after the meeting between Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Xinhua reported.
  
The United States has been pushing for a fourth round of UN sanctions on Iran. Turkey and Brazil, both non-permanent members of the UN Security Council, objected to sanctions and have been mediating an agreement on a fuel swap plan.
  
The nuclear swap plan calls for Iran to hand over its 3.5-percent enriched uranium to other countries in exchange for 20-percent uranium needed for nuclear reactors and for medical purpose.
