El-Baradei said eight or nine years would be sufficient for Iran to convince the international community that it was not interested in producing nuclear weapons and needed the technology only for civilian purposes.
Meanwhile, Iran said today that Moscow's plan to enrich Iran's uranium -- a deal supported by the UN, China, and the United States -- isn't good enough.
Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, says further discussions on Moscow's proposal are planned.
Moscow's plan is meant to allay fears that Iran could divert some enriched uranium for making nuclear weapons.
