Iran says its offer to limit some nuclear activities has been accepted by world powers in Geneva, who have offered to relax crippling economic 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. The Iranian announcement came as the chairman of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee said all options were still being reviewed.

Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., said he plans to decide on whether to move forward on a new Iran sanctions bill until after the talks in Geneva are over and he’s heard their result.

As Johnson made that statement, word emerged that Secretary of State John Kerry will make an unexpected trip to Geneva on Friday. While there, he will meet with Iran foreign minister Javad Zarif.

The White House has opposed the strengthening of sanctions because it says the move may hurt chances of getting the Iranians to negotiate an end to the standoff. But supporters such as Johnson say that is the opposite of what will happen. They say increased sanctions will make the Iranians realize they must compromise or suffer economically.
