Emad Kiyaei on framework agreement after decade of deadlock

AIC Executive Director, Emad Kiyaei, discusses the details of the framework agreement and implications it may have for the near future.

When asked about the surprisingly positive reaction displayed by many parties, Kiyaei noted, "I think that this is a major breakthrough in the talks, just as you mentioned. Also, Iran's commitment to the latest framework indicates that Iran will go beyond the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to make sure the international community can verify, monitor and have an understanding over Iran's nuclear program that is aimed for peaceful purposes."

He added, "This is beyond our expectations for sure. In return, we hope that the P5+1 can deliver on its commitments by lifting nuclear related sanctions."
