Let's discuss the nuclear fuel swap agreement in more depth with our current affairs commentator Gao Zhikai.

Q1: The UN proposed a nuclear fuel swap plan last October, only to have it rejected. Iran has now dropped its demand that the fuel exchange happen in stages, and no longer insists it take place inside Iran. Tehran also dropped a request to receive the fuel rods right away. What brought about these changes why did Iran finally make some concessions?

Q2: Turkey's Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, says the deal eliminates any need for UN sanctions. Do you think the new plan will satisfy the US and others involved in earlier negotiations, thus staving off a fourth round of UN sanctions?
