A provisional deal on Iran’s uranium enrichment capabilities has reportedly been reached.
The agreement limits the country to running only 6 000 from its total of 19 000 centrifuges, almost half of them non-operational.
However, the issues of Western sanctions and Iran’s research and development programs remain unresolved as the deadline for P5+1 talks approaches. US Secretary of State John Kerry says that major progress has been made, and the parts will work to settle the remaining matters.
In the meantime, CIA’s Director John Brennan has said that the US will be able to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weaponry.
In his interview for Fox News Sunday he said America has multiple ways to make sure Iran never gets a nuclear bomb if it opts out from the P5+1 talks.
Mr. Brennan warned, that should Iran start working in this direction, it would be at its own peril.
Radio Sputnik discussed the reported provisional deal with Dr. Hooshang Amirahmadi, political analyst and professor of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University.
