might be willing to place its refusal to develop nuclear weapons in treaty
form in exchange for US and allied power guarantees against an attack on
Iran by any of these powers or Israel."

Huh? Iran's refusal to develop nuclear weapons is ALREADY in treaty form - it's 
called the NPT, to which Iran is a signatory.

As far as the U.S. or Israel putting in writing that they won't attack Iran, 
well, good luck with that (either getting them to sign such an agreement, or 
believing they'll honor it even if they do).

Not that Iran's signature on the NPT treaty is doing it any good; it's being 
sanctioned by the "West" for doing nothing more than persuing a path guaranteed 
to it by the NPT, that is, developing nuclear power.
