U.S. officials in Geneva are offering Iran sanctions relief if the Islamic Republic stops expanding its nuclear program while talks continue on a comprehensive solution to its nuclear standoff with world powers. In return, Iran would have to agree to limit the level to which it enriches uranium, its stockpiles of nuclear fuel, the capacity of its nuclear facilities and allow foreign inspectors to verify it is keeping its word, the official said. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said such an interim deal would allow Iran to retain the ability to build nuclear weapons and should be rejected.
