Tehran: Iran achieved all its goals in nuclear deal



by Joseph Earnest July 14, 2015


Newscast Media TEHRAN—America has today negotiated a nuclear deal with Iran, but some politicians in Washington are afraid that numerous concessions may have been made to the Islamic Republic in order to finalize it.


After finalizing the deal, President Barack Obama said, "Today, after two years of negotiations, the United States, together with our international partners, has achieved something that decades of animosity has not...This deal demonstrates that American diplomacy can bring about real and meaningful change -- change that makes our country, and the world, safer and more secure.


"Because of this deal, Iran will modify the core of its reactor in Arak so that it will not produce weapons-grade plutonium.  And it has agreed to ship the spent fuel from the reactor out of the country for the lifetime of the reactor.  For at least the next 15 years, Iran will not build any new heavy-water reactors.


"As the American people and Congress review the deal, it will be important to consider the alternative.  Consider what happens in a world without this deal.  Without this deal, there is no scenario where the world joins us in sanctioning Iran until it completely dismantles its nuclear program.  Nothing we know about the Iranian government suggests that it would simply capitulate under that kind of pressure.  And the world would not support an effort to permanently sanction Iran into submission.  We put sanctions in place to get a diplomatic resolution, and that is what we have done."


Obama concluded by saying, "And finally, I want to thank the American negotiating team.  We had a team of experts working for several weeks straight on this, including our Secretary of Energy, Ernie Moniz.  And I want to particularly thank John Kerry, our Secretary of State, who began his service to this country more than four decades ago when he put on our uniform and went off to war.  He’s now making this country safer through his commitment to strong, principled American diplomacy."


According to Al Manar News, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said his country had achieved all its four goals in the agreement that his foreign minister Zarif signed with the six world powers in Vienna on Tuesday, FARS reported.

President Rouhani said his nation started talks with the world powers in a bid to remove all sanctions while maintaining its nuclear program and nuclear progress as two main goals.

All sanctions, including the financial, banking, energy, insurance, transportation, precious metals and even the arms embargoes and proliferation sanctions will be, not suspended, but terminated according to the Tuesday agreement as soon as the deal comes into force, he said, adding that Iran will only be placed under certain arms deal restrictions for five years.


Al Manar also reported that Syrian President Bashar Assad congratulated the supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei and President Hasan Rouhani on the nuclear agreement signed between Tehran and the world powers on Tuesday in Vienna. In two cables sent to Imam Khamenei and Rouhani, President Assad described the deal as a “turning point” in the history of Iran, region and the world.

Assad also said that the deal is an admission by the world that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful.

"We are confident that the Islamic Republic of Iran will support, with greater drive, just causes of nations and work for peace and stability in the region and the world,” Assad reportedly said in the cables sent shortly following the deal was announced.

  • The full implementation of this JCPOA will ensure the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program.
  • Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop, or acquire any nuclear weapons.
  • This JCPOA will produce the comprehensive lifting of all UN Security Council sanctions as well as multilateral and national sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear program.
  • Iran’s long term plan includes certain agreed limitations on all uranium enrichment and uranium enrichment-related activities including certain limitations on specific research and development (R&D) activities for the first 8 years, to be followed by gradual evolution, at a reasonable pace, to the next stage of its enrichment activities for exclusively peaceful purposes.
  • Iran will begin phasing out its IR-1 centrifuges in 10 years. During this period, Iran will keep its enrichment capacity at Natanz at up to a total installed uranium enrichment capacity of 5060 IR-1 centrifuges. Excess centrifuges and enrichment-related infrastructure at Natanz will be stored under IAEA continuous monitoring.
  • Iran will convert the Fordow facility into a nuclear, physics and technology center.

Meanwhile, Obama is likely to face opposition from Republicans who are against the deal. In a statement, Speaker John Boehner wrote: "The House of Representatives will review every detail of this agreement very closely, but I won’t support any agreement that jeopardizes the safety of the American people and all who value freedom and security.  This isn’t about Republicans versus Democrats.  It’s about right and wrong.  And we will fight a bad deal that is wrong for our national security and wrong for our country."  Add Comments>>
