Iran has the right to enrich uranium, but does not insist others recognize that right, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator said on Sunday, indicating a possible way past one of the main sticking points between Tehran and world powers in talks this week. Iran and the six world powers are moving closer to an initial agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program, a senior U.S. official and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov both said in the last two days, raising hopes of a peaceful end to the 10-year dispute. Talks in Geneva between Iran and the so-called P5+1 - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States - on November 7-8 appeared close to clinching a deal but ended without agreement.
