    On its face, the framework announced on Thursday for an agreement that limits Iran's nuclear programme goes further toward preventing Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon than many experts expected it would, including requiring an international inspection system of unprecedented intrusiveness. Several contentious issues, however, remain to be clarified in the final accord, scheduled to be negotiated by June 30. These include the exact process for lifting international sanctions that have devastated Iran's economy and the degree to which ending the sanctions will hinge on the Islamic republic's clarifying past research it's suspected of conducting on a missile-borne nuclear warheads.

    Mar 27, 2015 | Cybercast News Service

    Throughout the negotiations over its nuclear program Iran has insisted that it will not shut a facility it secretly built deep in a mountainside, but reports from the eleventh hour talks in Switzerland now indicate that the U.S. and its P5+1 partners are considering giving in to the demand. If true, their willingness to allow Iran to keep the underground site at Fordow would be a reversal of a condition the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany laid down in 2012.

    It took 18 months of often-tortured diplomacy, but Iran and a US-led group of countries may be just days away from signing a "political agreement" to determine limitations on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions. In the 18 months since then, Iran exceeded negotiated oil export caps, grew its stockpile of 5% enriched uranium, which has gone through around half the centrifuge revolutions needed to reach weapons grade, by 11%; fed uranium into an advanced centrifuge in violation of the JPOA's terms, and failed to answer 11 of 12 questions international monitors posed about their nuclear weaponization research.

    The United States is considering letting Iran run hundreds of centrifuges at a once-secret, fortified underground bunker in exchange for limits on centrifuge work and research and development at other sites, officials told The Associated Press on Thursday. Western officials familiar with details of the negotiations told the news agency the deal would allow Iran to run several hundred of the devices at the Fordow facility, although the Iranians would not be allowed to do work that could lead to an atomic bomb and the site would be subject to international inspections.
