The broad outlines of a deal seem to have been clear for some time. The Presidential election of Iran led to the Presidency of Rouhani, who is described by the western media as a political moderate.
It consists of a short-term freeze of portions of Iran's nuclear program in exchange for decreased economic sanctions on Iran , as the countries work towards a long-term agreement.

A senior U. The U. The fifth round of talks ended on 20 June , "with substantial differences still remaining. Under Secretary Sherman noted after the talks that it was "still unclear" whether Iran would act "to ensure the world that its nuclear program was strictly meant for peaceful purposes. Under the Geneva interim agreement Iran agreed to convert some of its up to 5 percent LEU into an oxide powder that is not suitable for further enrichment.
This means that Iran's LEU stockpile "is almost certainly continuing to increase for the time being, simply because its production of the material has not stopped, unlike that of the 20 percent uranium gas. Secretary of State John Kerry and other Western foreign ministers arrived at Vienna to break a deadlock in the nuclear talks with Iran,  but their joint efforts failed to advance the negotiations. German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said: "It is now time for Iran to decide whether they want co-operation with the world community or stay in isolation.
No decision on an extension of negotiations beyond the 20 July deadline has been taken yet. Wrapping-up the sixth round the Foreign Minister Zarif said that the achieved progress convinced the sides to extend their talks and the ultimate deadline would be 25 November.
He also expressed the hope that the new British foreign secretary Philip Hammond "will adopt a constructive diplomacy" towards Iran. Republicans and Democrats in Congress made it clear that they view a prolongation of the talks as allowing Iran to play for time. The Republican chairman of the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs Ed Royce said he hoped "the administration will finally engage in robust discussions with Congress about preparing additional sanctions against Iran".
Before the expiration of the six months imposed by the Joint Plan of Action JPA the sides agreed to extend negotiations by four months with a final deadline set for 24 November Negotiations will resume in September.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov pointed that the issues of Iran's enrichment programme, the schedule for sanction lifting and the future of the reactor in Arak were not settled and the subjects of inspection and transparency, duration of the agreement and some others were not completely agreed yet.
The round of talks took place on 11 November in the Omani capital Muscat and lasted one hour. The talks were supposed to continue until the 24 November deadline.
At an IAEA meeting held on 20 November in Vienna the agency's Director General Yukiya Amano, referring to allegations related to Iran's engagement in weaponization activities, said that "Iran has not provided any explanations that enable the agency to clarify the outstanding practical measures. The 10th round of nuclear negotiations and the 1st extension of the Joint Plan of Action ended on 24 November, failing to reach agreement. They agreed to extend the Joint Plan of Action for the second time with a new deadline for a comprehensive deal set to 1 July British foreign secretary Philip Hammond said it was not possible to meet the November deadline due to wide gaps on well-known points of contention.
There obviously are gaps. We've said that. No statements were issued after the closed-door talks either by the U. Deputy foreign minister Araqchi said that it was agreed to continue the talks "next month" at a venue to be decided. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov said that Arak heavy-water reactor and sanctions against Iran were the two key outstanding issues in the nuclear talks.

The deal is partial and preliminary and serves as a precursor to a full, comprehensive and detailed agreement due to be completed by 30 June Nobody has obligations now other than obligations that we already undertook under the Joint Plan of Action that we adopted in Geneva in November As Iran pursues a peaceful nuclear program , Iran's enrichment capacity, enrichment level and stockpile will be limited for specific durations and there will be no other enrichment facility than Natanz.
Fordow will be converted into a nuclear physics and technology center and Iran's research and development on centrifuges will be carried out based on a mutually agreed framework.
A modernized heavy water research reactor in Arak will be redesigned and rebuilt with the assistance of an international joint venture that will not produce weapons-grade plutonium. There will be no nuclear reprocessing , and spent fuel will be exported. To clarify past and present issues regarding Iran's nuclear program, the International Atomic Energy Agency will be permitted the use of modern technologies and will have announced access through agreed procedures.
Iran will take part in international cooperation in the field of civilian nuclear energy including supply of power and research reactors as well as nuclear safety and security. The European Union will terminate the implementation of all nuclear-related economic and financial sanctions and the United States will cease the application of all nuclear-related secondary economic and financial sanctions simultaneously with the IAEA -verified implementation by Iran of its key nuclear commitments.
To endorse the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action JCPOA , a new UN Security Council resolution will be approved that terminates all previous nuclear-related resolutions , and incorporate certain restrictive measures for a mutually agreed period of time.
In April and May there was considerable unease in the US Congress about the ongoing negotiations, with both Republicans and Democrats expressing worries that the deal would not prevent Iran from getting the bomb.
On 3 March, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had addressed a joint session of Congress, outlining his reasons for opposing the deal. Talks resumed in Vienna, Austria. The deadline of 30 June was passed, but talks continued. According to a statement of the United States Department of State bilateral nuclear consultations between the U.

On 15 to 16 December the U. A member of Tehran's team told IRNA that uranium enrichment and how to remove sanctions were sticking points in the bilateral talks. He also claimed that JPA did not imply step-by-step removal of sanctions and the removal of sanctions has been "a condition for an agreement".
Zarif stated: "I don't think if we don't have an agreement, it'll be the end of the world. I mean, we tried, we failed, fine. He said: "Clarification of issues with possible military dimension and implementation of the Additional Protocol and beyond is essential. From 2—4 March , Iran and U. Among the issues discussed at the meeting was Tom Cotten's open letter to Iranian leaders , signed by 47 Republican U. After the talks a senior U.
The sides were divided on some crucial issues and Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei said he wanted no written agreement until all details were settled. Department of State has argued that there are points when it makes sense for the foreign ministers at the trilateral level to get together to talk. Department of State official said at a briefing with reporters that the parties were focused on the 24 November deadline and had not discussed an extension of the talks.
The negotiators were working on a full agreement — the understandings and the annexes to them. Officials from all delegations have abstained from briefing reporters. It was not reported whether they made any headway. Zarif also emphasized on mutual interests of countries. Iran's nuclear enrichment capacity was the biggest stumbling block in the negotiations on a comprehensive agreement. Limited enrichment would mean limits on the numbers and types of centrifuges.
Shortly before the comprehensive negotiations began, Iran was estimated to have 19, centrifuges installed, mostly first generation IR-1 machines, with about 10, of them operating to increase the concentration of uranium The Iranians strive to expand their enrichment capacity by a factor of ten or more while the six powers aim to cut the number of centrifuges to no more than a few thousand.
Michael Singh argued in October , that there were two distinct paths to deal with Iran's nuclear program: complete dismantling or allowing limited activities while preventing Iran from a nuclear "breakout capability",  also echoed by Colin H. Kahl, as published by the Center for a New American Security.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying "any enrichment will trigger an arms race in the Middle East. Colin Kahl, former Deputy Assistant U. Secretary of Defense for the Middle East, estimated in May that Iran's stockpile was large enough to build 6 nuclear weapons and it had to be reduced. Constraints on Iran's uranium enrichment would reduce the chance that its nuclear program could be used to make nuclear warheads.
The number and quality of centrifuges, research and development of advanced centrifuges, and the size of low-enriched uranium stockpiles, would be relevant. Iran stated [ when? Department of State, claimed that if Iran was to continue to insist on what he considered to be a huge number of centrifuges, then there would be no agreement, since this enrichment capacity would bring the breakout time down to weeks or days. Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, testifying before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, said that a good deal will be one that cuts off Iran's uranium, plutonium and covert pathways to obtain nuclear weapons.
The United States’ “Withdrawal” from the Iran Nuclear Deal
While the heated exchanges of the past between the Iranian regime and Israel could be analyzed as political posturing, the latest tensions must be taken seriously. Israeli military chief Lt. Aviv Kohavi warned about striking the Tehran regime because of its nuclear threat. We are taking care of these plans and will develop them during the coming year. Those who decide on carrying them out, of course, are the political leaders. But these plans have to be on the table. The Iranian regime fired back, with armed forces spokesperson Brig.

Furthermore, it has permitted the more intrusive IAEA monitoring inspections, including the implementation of the Additional protocol. Granting significant economic benefits to Iran through the increase in oil exports and resuming banking transactions, the JCPOA was a significant diplomatic achievement for the regional and international security. However, the prior diplomatic efforts have whittled away in the aftermath of the US unilateral withdrawal from the deal and reimposition of the crippling sanctions regime, which swept away all the economic incentives for Iran to stick to its commitments envisioned by the deal. Following the fifth breach announced by Iran on 5 January, the E3 launched the dispute resolution process, which is laid out in the JCPOA, viewing the dispute resolution mechanism as the only way to incite the Iranian authorities to resume compliance to the JCPOA.

For the next 15 years Iran will only enrich uranium up to 3. Iran also agreed not to build any new heavy-water facilities for the same period of time. Uranium-enrichment activities will be limited to a single facility using first-generation centrifuges for 10 years. Other facilities will be converted to avoid proliferation risks.

Десяток компьютерных терминалов располагались напротив видеоэкрана, занимавшего всю дальнюю стену площадью девять на двенадцать метров. На экране стремительно сменяли друг друга цифры и диаграммы, как будто кто-то скользил рукой по клавишам управления. Несколько операторов очумело перебегали от одного терминала к другому, волоча за собой распечатки и отдавая какие-то распоряжения. В помещении царила атмосфера полного хаоса.
