Sounds like a new Iran to me, right? Already there is a disagreement brewing- Iran claims they now have the recognized right to uranium enrichment, yet a “senior U.S. official” says, no, we didn’t agree to that.
Via Times Of Israel:
Iranian officials hailed a nuclear agreement signed with six world powers early Sunday, calling it a large success for the regime in Tehran and confirmation of the country’s right to enrich uranium.
The agreement, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said, represented “a big success for Iran” and an indication that “all plots hatched by the Zionist regime to stop the nuclear agreement have failed,” according to a report from state-sponsored Islamic Republic News Agency.
Zarif acknowledged on Sunday that the deal was “only a first step,” according to a Reuters report. “We need to start moving in the direction of restoring confidence, a direction in which we have managed to move against in the past,” he said.
The agreement signed Sunday morning in Geneva after several months of intense talks, including some in secret, amounts to a six-month partial freeze in Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for limited relief on the Western sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy.
However, Iran has “no trust” in the Obama administration, and the deal is an opportunity for American to “renew the confidence of the Iranian nation,” Zarif told Iranian state news agency Press TV. Iran will, as part of the deal, cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency in order to “minimize the worry,” he added.
Despite signing the deal, a disagreement formed between the US and Iran over whether it included Western recognition of Iran’s right to enrich uranium, as Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi told the Tehran Times Sunday.
In a briefing with press shortly after the deal was announced, a senior US administration official emphasized that the US does not – and will not – recognize any Iranian right to enrich uranium.
In Geneva on Sunday, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius confirmed at a press conference that the deal recognized Iran’s right to civilian nuclear power.
