Iran Will Continue Research and Development of their Nuclear Program Despite Deal

Friday, April 3, 2015 | Tag Cloud

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- Iran and world powers on Thursday announced that following the latest round of nuclear negotiations, Western powers agreed to permit Iran to continue operating the core aspects of its nuclear program and that all sanctions of the Islamic Republic would be terminated, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

After failing to meet a March 31 deadline for the announcement of a firm political agreement, Secretary of State John Kerry and Javad Zarif, his Iranian counterpart, said that the sides had agreed in principle to let Iran continue running major portions of its nuclear program.

Despite threats from Obama administration officials that the United States would abandon talks if Iran continued to demand greater concessions, Kerry extended his trip and conducted a series of meetings aimed at hashing out a statement of progress—a far cry from the detailed document officials vowed would be finalized by now.

The sides continue to disagree over Iranian demands that it be permitted to continue key nuclear research and granted the ability to ramp its program up to industrial capacity after a decade.

However, Zarif said many of these issues are closer to being resolved.

"None of those measures" that will move to scale back Iran's program "include closing any of our facilities," Zarif said. "We will continue enriching; we will continue research and development." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://freebeacon.com/national-security/iran-brags-about-nuke-concessions/print/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
