    P5+1, Iran Negotiators Take Short Break After Night-Long Talks

    After pulling an all-nighter, Iranian and the P5+1 group of international mediators decided to take a break and will resume negotiations in a few hours.

    LAUSANNE (Sputnik) – The ongoing talks on the Iran nuclear issue in the Swiss city of Lausanne have been halted for a few hours, a US State Department spokesperson informs.

    "Negotiations just broke. Will resume again in a few hours," Deputy Spokesperson for the US State Department Marie Harf wrote on her Twitter page early on Thursday.

    "That was truly an all-nighter," Harf said in a separate post, explaining that it was 6 a. m. in Lausanne.

    The Lausanne round of negotiations started on March 19. Iran and the P5+1 group of international mediators, which includes Russia, the United States, France, China, the United Kingdom and Germany, were supposed to reach a political framework agreement on Tuesday, however, the talks continued into Wednesday.

    The deadline for a final comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear program has been set for July 1, 2015.

    Tehran wants Western sanctions imposed against Iran over its nuclear activities to be fully lifted as part of the deal with the P5+1. The West, which fears that Iran is developing nuclear weapons under the guise of a civilian program, wants Tehran to halt its uranium enrichment program and decrease the number of centrifuges in the country.

    Iran, P5+1 joint statement calling for removal of all anti-Iran sanctions


    Thu Apr 2, 2015 5:38PM

    European Union’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini (L), and Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, take part in a joint press conference in the Swiss city of Lausanne on Thursday.


    Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers have adopted a joint statement after marathon talks in the Swiss city of Lausanne calling, among other things, for the removal of UNSC resolutions and sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

    The statement was read out in a joint press conference in the Swiss city by the EU high representative, Federica Mogherini, and Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Thursday.

    In the framework of the agreement, none of Iran’s nuclear facilities as well as the previous activities will be stopped, shut down or suspended and Iran’s nuclear activities in all its nuclear facilities including Natanz, Fordow, Isfahan and Arak will continue.

    These comprehensive solutions will guarantee the continued enrichment program inside the Iranian territory and according to this, Iran will be allowed to go on with industrial production of nuclear fuel which is meant for running its nuclear power plants.

    According to the solutions, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) for enrichment program will cover a 10-year period, during which more than 5,000 centrifuge machines will continue producing enriched material at Natanz facility up to the 3.67-percent level. Extra machines and the related infrastructure in the facility will be collected by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in order to be replaced by new machines consistent with the allowed standards. Accordingly, Iran will be allowed to allocate the current stockpile of enriched materials for the purpose of producing nuclear fuel or swapping it with uranium in the international markets.

    Iran will continue research and development program on advanced centrifuge machines and will be also able to keep initiating and completing its R & D program on IR-4, IR-5, IR-6 and IR-8 machines in the 10-year period of the agreement.

    Fordow facility

    According to the joint statement, Fordow nuclear facility will be turned into a research center for nuclear science and physics. More than 1,000 centrifuges will be maintained at this facility and two centrifuge cascades will keep operating. In cooperation with the P5+1 countries, about half of the Fordow facility will be dedicated to advanced nuclear research and production of stable isotopes which have important applications in industry, agriculture and medicine.

    Arak heavy water reactor

    According to the statement, the heavy water reactor in the Iranian city of Arak will remain in place but will be redesigned and updated. The redesigning process will greatly increase efficiency of the reactor while reducing the amount of plutonium produced in the facility. The redesigning process will be done according to defined scheduled as an international project with cooperation of Iran. Production of fuel for Arak reactor and awarding international nuclear fuel production certificate will be among international cooperation to be offered to Iran.

    Additional Protocol

    Iran will implement the Additional Protocol temporarily and voluntarily in line with its confidence-building measures and after that the protocol will be ratified in a time frame by the Iranian government and parliament (Majlis).

    Removal of Sanctions

    Following the implementation of the JPCOA, all the UN Security Council sanctions as well as all economic and financial embargoes by the US and the European Union, including bans on banks, insurance, investment, and all other related services in different fields, including petrochemical, oil, gas and automobile industries will be lifted. Besides, all nuclear-related sanctions against real and legal entities, state and private organizations and institutions, including those sanctions imposed against the Central Bank of Iran, other financial and banking institutions, SWIFT system, and the country’s shipping and aviation sectors, and Iran's tanker company will be immediately lifted all at once. Moreover, the P5+1 countries are committed to avoid imposing any new nuclear-related sanctions against Iran.

    International Cooperation

    Iran’s international nuclear cooperation, including with the member states of the P5+1 will be possible and promoted in the fields of building nuclear power plants, research reactors, nuclear fusion, stable isotopes, nuclear safety, nuclear medicine and agriculture. According to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran will be provided with access to global market as well as international trade, finance, technical knowledge and energy.

    Schedule for implementing JCPOA

    At the end of these negotiations, the two sides will start drafting the JCPOA in the near future to meet the July 1 deadline. Once the text is finalized, the JCPOA will be adopted as a UN Security Council resolution. For the JCPOA to be binding for all UN member states, the resolution will be adopted under the Article 41 of Chapter Seven of the UN Charter to be able to render previous resolutions against Iran null and void.

    The joint statement released at the end of eight days of intensive negotiations in Lausanne on Thursday is a sign that Iran and its negotiating partners have come to a mutual understanding over Iran’s nuclear program.

    Representatives of Iran and the P5+1 group of countries -- the United States, Britain, China, France and Russia plus Germany – along with senior officials of the European Union have held talks over the past years to narrow the existing differences on Tehran’s nuclear activities.

    People! Did everyone forget the battle hasn't even begun? It still has to be ratified by US Congress before they can lift the sanctions, which it will be close to impossible, the Republicans are firmly in the Pro-Israel camp, the House and the Senate both have Republican majorities who are in fact very hostile towards Iran.

    If anything the highest chance for it failing has now just started.

    Will be interesting but 4+1 agree if the yanks scupper this now they'll be left behind. Also, and need to check this with US members on here, but the Prssident can veto their veto I think? Or I might be well off the mark here...

    Immediate financial gain through petro dollars and banking sector. Europe will be walking around with hard ons just thinking of the financial award awaiting, which of course will help their struggling economies.

    Next few weeks we should all know more but the fact the Israelis are screaming blue murder already is enough to tell me the deal is good.

    Very Happy

    ...One only has to look at the other major nuclear deal signed nearly 20 years ago, the so called 'Nuclear Test Ban Treaty', the US signed it back in 1996 and US Congress conscientiously made a decision not to ratify it. The likeliness that this will succeed while the other one failed is extremely-low.

    The Iran Nuclear Deal: Highlights, High Hopes, and Haters

    Iran nuclear program and sanctions - Page 2 1020402920

    Much to the dismay, no doubt, of at least 47 US Republican Senators, a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was reached concerning Iran's nuclear program Thursday, after 8 straight days of final-round negotiations, in Lausanne, Switzerland.

    As the tentative agreement is released, official, media, and popular reaction runs from one extreme to the other. The agreement covers five different areas: enrichments, inspections and transparency, reactors and reprocessing, sanctions, and phasing.

    This rough draft has to be molded and refined into a formal accord by June 30th and, as the text itself reminds readers, "nothing is agreed until everything is agreed." In the meantime, here are some highlights from the agreement, and reactions from across the spectrum.

    Enrichment

    Reduction of centrifuges — Iran will reduce its installed centrifuges from 9,000 installed today to 6,104.

    Level of Enrichment — For at least 15 years, Iran won't enrich any uranium to levels of over 3.67%

    Facilities - For at least 15 years, Iran won't build any new enrichment facilities, and it will not enrich uranium, store fissile material or research the enrichment of uranium at its Fordo facility. Only the Natanz facility will be used for enrichment for the next 10 years.


    Inspections and Transparency

    Inspector Access — The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will have access to all facilities, the complete supply chain to those facilities, uranium mines and mills (for 25 years), centrifuge production and storage facilities (for 20 years). It will be allowed to inspect sites, whether declared or not, and investigate suspicious or alleged sites.

    Additional Protocol — Iran will sign the IAEA Additional Protocol, which is a safeguards regime that greatly expanded the IAEA's ability to keep an eye out for clandestine nuclear programs, as well as Modified Code 3.1, which mandates early notification of any new construction plans.


    Reactors and Reprocessing


    Arak - The heavy water reactor at Arak, which had generated worries that it would be used to produce weapons grade plutonium, will be redesigned for peaceful research and radioisotope production. Its original core will be removed and destroyed. Spent fuel will be shipped out of the country. For 15 years Iran won't accumulate excess heavy water or build any new heavy water reactors.


    Sanctions

    EU & US — Once the IAEA confirms that Iran has completed all the nuclear-related requirements, US and EU nuclear-related sanctions will be lifted. Any backsliding by Iran, the US has warned, means the sanctions come back as well.

    UN - Once Iran complies, UN Security council resolutions relating directly to nuclear activities will be lifted, but those relating to things like the transfer of sensitive technologies will be renegotiated. A dispute resolution process will be established, but if parties fail to find resolutions for conflicts arising from the JCPOA, UN sanctions can snap back into place.


    Phasing

    10 years — limit enrichment capacity and R&D, centrifuge limitations, maintain one-year "breakout timeline" (the time needed to produce enough uranium for one nuclear weapon).

    15 years — no new enrichment facilities or heavy water reactors, limited enriched uranium stockpile, extra transparency measures.

    25 years — robust inspections of Iran's supply chain, access to uranium mines and mills

    Permanent — adherence to the IAEA Additional Protocol, and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).


    Mixed Reaction

    "The political understanding with details that we have reached is a solid foundation for the good deal we are seeking, " said US Secretary of State John Kerry, acknowledging that many technical details are yet to be worked out.

    France was cautious in its optimism, with president Francois Hollande saying: "France will be watchful… to ensure that a credible, verifiable agreement be established under which the international community can be sure Iran will not be in a position to have access to nuclear arms."

    Israel's Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz, however, did not join in praise of the deal, calling the framework "detached from a wretched reality." And Iran's Foreign Minister Mohamad Javad Zarif said "We're still some time away from reaching where we want to be," and that the deal didn't erase other political differences with the United States.

    "We have built mutual distrust in the past," said Zarif, "So what I hope is that through courageous implementation of this some of that trust could be remedied. But that is for us all to wait and see."

    In unofficial circles, reaction on social media is running the gamut between joyous celebration, and predictions of utter catastrophe.

    Hmmm, yes reading the U.S. Papers it would look like the real fight to make this work will take place within the U.S. itself...tragic if the Jewish lobbyists scupper this deal. Sad that America is so openly and crudely controlled by Israel.

    Bibi is a mad dog of that there is little doubt. But I guess if there is no threat, no war, Israel becomes irrelevant with dwindling international support. Dangerous situation for them but one of their own making.

    Iran's Revolutionary Guard chief backs nuclear talks



    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The chief of Iran's Revolutionary Guard praised the work of the country's nuclear negotiators after they struck a deal with world powers, state television reported Tuesday, a major endorsement from the Islamic Republic's most powerful institution.

    The comments by Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari came as some 200 hard-liners protested in Tehran against the framework deal reached last week in Switzerland. Jafari's endorsement likely will isolate those still opposing the deal further amid the widespread support negotiators have received and may smooth any potential parliamentary vote over it.

    "With God's grace, the revolutionary children of Islamic Iran have succeeded in defending the rights of the Iranian nation and the Iranian nation and the Guard appreciate their honest political efforts," Jafari was quoted as saying on state TV's website.

    The Revolutionary Guard is the single most powerful institution in Iran. It exerts a strong behind-the-scenes role in Iranian affairs and likely would have to agree to any potential demands reached in negotiations, such as increased international monitoring at nuclear and related sites.

    Iran's top leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all major issues, including the nuclear program, has backed the negotiators, further stepping up the pressure on remaining hold-out hard-liners.

    The rally Tuesday by 200 hard-line protesters took place in front of the parliament in the Iranian capital as Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif briefed lawmakers there in a closed-door session. Iran's official IRNA news agency reported that the protesters launched their demonstrations without the permission of authorities.

    Protesters carried banners calling the agreement a "defeat" — despite the overwhelming backing of the deal by the government of moderate President Hassan Rouhani.

    The deal, which is to be finalized by June 30, is to curb Iran's bomb-capable technology while giving Tehran quick access to bank accounts, oil markets and financial assets blocked by international sanctions.

    The West long has feared Iran's nuclear program could allow it to build an atomic bomb. Iran has said its program is for peaceful purposes.

    Iran, P5+1 Can Still Finalize Nuclear Deal by June 30- US State Department

    The US government continues to believe that finalizing a nuclear agreement with Iran by the June 30, 2015 deadline is feasible, despite reports that negotiations have stalled, US Department of State spokesperson Jeff Rathke told reporters on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Rathke explained US Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman is in Vienna, Austria, along with other mediators trying to finalize a nuclear agreement with Iran by the end of the month.

    “We remain of the view that June 30 is achievable… to reach a joint comprehensive plan of action by that time.”

    In April 2015, Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, comprising of the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany, worked out a political framework on the Iranian nuclear program in the Swiss city of Lausanne.

    Under the deal, Tehran pledged to cut back uranium enrichment and decrease its number of centrifuges, in exchange for a gradual lifting of international sanctions.

    However, Iran and the world powers still disagree on a number of key issues, such as the mechanism of re-imposing sanctions on Tehran in case the deal is violated.

    The negotiators have yet to agree on how to grant the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) access to Iran’s nuclear facilities, as well as a mechanism and time frame for lifting the sanctions.

    Putin: Russia welcomes agreements on Iran

    The Russian president expressed satisfaction that the underlying principle of the found solution is that of phasing and reciprocity, which Russia consistently defended at all stages of negotiations

    MOSCOW, July 14./TASS/. Moscow welcomes the agreements on Iran and will do everything it can to see the agreements reached in Vienna implemented in full, President Vladimir Putin has said.

    "We are satisfied that the underlying principle of the found solution is that of phasing and reciprocity, which our country consistently defended at all stages of these difficult negotiations," a statement of the Russian leader posted on the Kremlin website says.

    "The Russian team of negotiators and nuclear specialists made a sizable expert contribution to the drafting of a comprehensive agreement, which made it possible to unify different, often diametral, positions," Putin said. "Implementation of the coordinated actions will be under thorough control of the IAEA with an aim to confirm the entirely peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear program," he said.

    "Iran gets a possibility to develop this program, including uranium enrichment, under control from the IAEA and with a phased lifting of the sanctions imposed against Tehran, which we had insistently urged for a long time," the statement added.

    "This is important also from the point of view of the implementation of large-scale plans of Russia’s cooperation with Tehran on peaceful atom, which were supported in the documents approved today," Putin noted.

    "We expect that all interested parties, first of all the P5+1 states, will be complying in full with the reached solutions," Putin said. "Political will demonstrated by P5+1 and Iran in the course of the negotiations that have been completed is a guarantee of successful implementation of a plan of action designed for an extended period," he added.

    "Russia will be doing all it can to see the Vienna agreements implemented in full, contributing to the strengthening of international and regional security, a global regime of nuclear non-proliferation, creation in the Middle East of a zone free of weapons of mass destruction and means of their delivery, mobilization of a broad coalition in the region to counter a terrorist threat," Putin said.

    That's brutal ! Only IAEA is allowed to inspect and that too only civilian plants , not military nuclear plants hidden in their secret mountain bases . muirkans will simply mark those hidden secret nuclear labs on their gps navigation system and rest their precision guided bombs and bunker busters will do the job . Iranians Shah aren't that stupid i suppose and don't take it for granted that usa is going to disobey israel's interests .

    Side Deal: UN Agrees to Let Iran Inspect Alleged Nuclear Work Site

    Iran will be permitted to use its own inspectors to investigate a site that allegedly has been used to develop nuclear weapons, according to the terms of a secret agreement with a United Nations nuclear agency.

    The inspections concession of the Parchin nuclear site – outlined in a document viewed by the Associated Press – is a part of Iran's side agreement with the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

    The United States and five other world powers, which reached a deal with Iran last month to curb Tehran's nuclear program, were not party to the concession. But the P5+1 group were briefed by the IAEA and endorsed it as part of the larger nuclear deal reached last month, the AP reported.

    The newly revealed side agreement was slammed by Republican lawmakers who have criticized the overarching international accord with Iran.

    John Cornyn, of Texas, the second-ranking Republican senator, said:

    "Trusting Iran to inspect its own nuclear site and report to the UN in an open and transparent way is remarkably naive and incredibly reckless. This revelation only reinforces the deep-seated concerns the American people have about the agreement"

    California Congressman Ed Royce, who heads the House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman, said the side agreement reflects a capitulation to Iran.

    "International inspections should be done by international inspectors. Period. The standard of 'anywhere, anytime' inspections – so critical to a viable agreement – has dropped to 'when Iran wants, where Iran wants, on Iran's terms.'"

    Instead of letting the IAEA access the Parchin site, Iran is to provide the agency with photos and videos of locations suspected of weapons work, "taking into account military concerns."

    That wording suggests that the IAEA will not get photo of video from areas Iran says are off-limits because they have military importance, the AP reported.

    Olli Heinonen, who was in charge of the Iran probe as deputy IAEA director general from 2005 to 2010, told the AP he could think of no similar concession with any other country.

    The White House, meanwhile, has repeatedly denied claims of a secret side deal favorable to Tehran.

    On Wednesday, a White House spokesman said the Obama administration was "confident in the agency's technical plans for investigating the possible military dimensions of Iran's former program…. The IAEA has separately developed the most robust inspection regime ever peacefully negotiated."

    Iran starts implementing agreement on nuclear program

    In particular, Tehran is cutting the number of centrifuges, including at the Natanz nuclear facility, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi informs

    TOKYO, November 2. /TASS/. Iran has started implementing the agreements on its nuclear program, including by cutting the number of centrifuges for uranium enrichment, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi told Japan’s Kyodo news agency on Monday.

    "We have launched preliminary work," Salehi, who is currently on a visit to Japan, said. "In particular, we are cutting the number of centrifuges, including at the Natanz nuclear facility. However, the full implementation of the agreement will require time," he added.

    TASS reported earlier that during his visit to Tokyo Salehi will hold talks on cooperation in the sphere of nuclear security. During last negotiations that took place in Tehran in October between the foreign ministers of Iran and Japan Javad Zarif and Fumio Kishida, the sides agreed to step up cooperation in the sphere of nuclear technologies and nuclear security. The final document adopted after the meeting defined the framework of possible cooperation, in particular, on working out measures in case of incidents in nuclear centers and on assessing facilities under construction on their adherence to the norms of seismostability and security. The document also envisages sending Japanese experts to Iran and developing educational programs.


    Agreement on Iran’s nuclear program


    On 14 July 2015, the P5+1 group of international mediators (five permanent members of UN Security Council — US, UK, Russia, China, France — and Germany) and Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Tehran’s nuclear program. Iran will not produce weapons-grade plutonium and limit its stockpile of uranium enriched to 3.67% to 300 kilograms for the next 15 years. Tehran also agreed to modernize its nuclear facilities and use them for exclusively peaceful purposes.

    Sanctions will be gradually removed from Iran. The arms embargo imposed by UN Security Council will be kept in place for five years, ban for supplying ballistic missile technologies to Iran — for eight years. Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will monitor nuclear facilities in Iran for the next 25 years. If any points of the agreement are violated by Iran, sanctions against the country will be renewed.

    On July 20, the corresponding resolution on Iran’s nuclear program agreement was adopted by UN Security Council.

    Iran on Final Stage of Fulfilling Nuclear Program Agreement

    Tehran is completing its obligations regarding the nuclear deal, a diplomatic source said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Iran is on the final stage of fulfilling agreements on its nuclear program, Iran’s ISNA news agency reported Thursday citing a source in the country’s Foreign Ministry.

    “The completion of the nuclear agreement is on its final stage,” ISNA quoted Hamid Baedinejad as saying.

    Earlier in the day, Baedinejad said the nuclear agreement completion was "on its final stage," according to Iran’s ISNA news agency.

    On Wednesday, the ministry announced the UN's final report on the Iranian nuclear agreement would be released on Friday.

    In July, Iran and the six world powers, namely Russia, China, the United States, France the United Kingdom and Germany, signed a historic deal on Tehran's nuclear program. The deal guarantees the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions' relief.

    In December, the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency adopted a final resolution to close an investigation into allegations that Iran was developing nuclear weapon, which means all previous UN Security Council sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear program will no longer apply once the JCPOA takes effect.

    I guess Russia will now be left out in the dark regarding anything Iran now.  Iran signed agreements to purchase planes from both Boeing and Airbus.  Nothing for Russia.  Russia put in so much effort to lift Iranian sanctions and they will get 0 out of this deal.  Iran isn't a partner of Russia, and the retarded Russian authorities followed along with the illegal sanctions, and all they got in return was sanctioned and no sales to Iran.

    For F sakes.  Are Russian authorities this downright retarded?  And yet, Iran is still going to get sanctioned by US regardless.

    I hope this will act as a rude awakening to Russia and Russian leaderships. Stop trying to help other countries. Simply help itself, build itself up and sell to whomever whenever. All this is bullshit. Russia just shot itself in the foot and Iran will give maybe some breadcrumbs to Russia while the west will win tens of hundreds of billions of dollars in contracts while Russia may get a few billion. God damn this is so f'in pathetic. Never trust a muslim nation like Iran or anyone else outside. They will sell their mothers as soon as they can when sanctions are lifted, to the very people who screwed them.

    It is obvious that this is the reward for US and EE countries to lift the sanctions. They also want to make business with Iran. But on the other side Russia definitely has the biggest potential in military market of Iran
