In exchange for limiting some nuclear activities

Iran says its offer to limit some nuclear activities has been accepted by world powers in Geneva, who have offered to relax crippling sanctions in return.

"Today, they clearly said that they accept the proposed framework by Iran," Abbas Araghchi, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, told Iranian state TV, according to the Associated Press.

Araghchi did not provide details of Iran's proposal, and said he expects an agreement on the details Friday.

U.S. negotiators in Geneva for the talks said they would offer Iran sanctions relief if the Islamic Republic stops expanding its nuclear program while talks continue for several months on a comprehensive solution to its nuclear standoff with world powers.
