TEHRAN Fri Oct 23, 2009 9:55am EDT

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran said on Friday it had proposed to world powers that it purchase nuclear fuel for its Tehran reactor, state television reported.

"Iran is interested in buying fuel for the Tehran research reactor within the framework of a clear proposal ... we are waiting for the other party's constructive and trust-building response," TV quoted a member of Iran's negotiating team as saying.

Iran was reacting to a proposal from the U.N. nuclear watchdog that it should ship its low-enriched uranium abroad for processing.
