Iran to start scaling back nuclear program January 20, White House says


[LEFT](CNN) – Save the date: Iran has pledged to start eliminating some of its uranium stockpile on January 20, the White House said Sunday.[/LEFT]

[LEFT]That gives an official start time for the six-month interim deal with Iran, which was first announced in November.[/LEFT]

[LEFT]“As of that day, for the first time in almost a decade, Iran’s nuclear program will not be able to advance, and parts of it will be rolled back, while we start negotiating a comprehensive agreement to address the international community’s concerns about Iran’s program,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement Sunday.

Iranian officials also confirmed the start date for the deal, state media reported.[/LEFT]




January 20, 3014? :ehh:


I don’t much believe Iran will fail to develop nuclear weapons, but right now, Iran has some serious fights with Sunni radicals on its hands in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. War is expensive, and Iran undoubtedly needs money to conduct it. Iran might be willing to cut back on its nuke program for now in order to get sanctions lifted in full.
