Iran & West Near Deal

I've Been Thinking:
The British Daily Telegraph website came out with a blockbuster last night.
According to their French diplomat source Iran and the West are about to close a deal - brokered by the Turks.
The deal would involve lifting sanctions against Iran and taking them out of the international doghouse. In exchange the Iranians would deliver 1000 kilo of low enriched uranium and all 30 kilo of their 20% enriched uranium to the West.
In other words, if this really is the deal, almost all the uranium that the Iranians have - certainly all the highly enriched uranium they possess, would be given over to Western nations.
It all, of course, comes with a price tag higher than the mere lifting of sanctions. The West would then supply Iran with already enriched uranium rods (even at 20%) to be used for medical research.
Sounds good, maybe too good.
