Deal reached with Iran to limit nuclear program

An agreement has been reached to limit Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief will ensure Iran has no possibility to achieve rapid nuclear weapons “breakout” capabilities for at least the next decade, diplomats said.

Obama administration officials described the deal as moving beyond a political framework reached three months ago, and said it met all U.S. requirements for blocking pathways to weapons development with strict inspections and provisions to snap sanctions back into place if Iran violates the rules.

The agreement will not take effect until Iran is certified to have met its terms — something Iran says will be a matter of weeks — but Western diplomats have said could take at least until the end of the year.

The deal culminated 17 straight days of sometimes-rocky negotiations that often stretched through the night and occasionally were marked by shouting that wafted beyond the closed doors of the negotiating rooms.

“This is a great day for world peace,” said a senior Iranian official, speaking to Western reporters on condition of anonymity in advance of the official announcement. “We hope we will be able to make a big step toward regional and international peace and security.”
