TEHRAN: Iran's nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi said Saturday that a dispute with world powers over the Arak heavy water reactor has been "virtually solved," the Al-Alam Arabic-language television reported.

"Iran has made a proposal to the P5+1 [group of world powers] to make certain changes in Arak and they have accepted. This question is virtually resolved," Salehi said.

Iran has been negotiating with six world powers aimed at clinching a comprehensive agreement on its nuclear drive, and a deal may involve Iran slashing the number of its centrifuges, changing the design of a new reactor at Arak and giving UN inspectors more oversight.
