Kerry says Iran sanctions could be eased in months
AFP 1 hour ago
UNITED NATIONS (United States) (AFP) - US Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that if Iran takes rapid measures to cooperate with international monitoring of its nuclear program, Washington could begin lifting sanctions within months.
Speaking to CBS News flagship 60 Minutes he said Iran should, for example, open up its Fordow underground nuclear facility to international inspection and undertake to scale down the level to which it enriches uranium.
"The United States is not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very verifiable, accountable, transparent process is in place, whereby we know exactly what Iran is going be doing with its program," he said.
But, asked by his interviewer whether Iranian President Hassan Rouhani had been right to predict that a deal could be in place within three to six months, Kerry replied: "Sure, it's possible."
"It's possible to have a deal sooner than that depending on how forthcoming and clear Iran is prepared to be," he said, according to a transcript provided by CBS.
Kerry's comments were broadcast after a day in which he had held a rare -- almost unprecedented -- encounter with his Iranian opposite number Mohammad Javad Zarif, and both took part in a meeting of the P5+1 Iran contact group.
Zarif and Rouhani were in New York for the annual United Nations General Assembly and repeated their insistence that Iran has no intention of developing nuclear weapons.

Nobel peace prizes for everyone!
this guy makes Neville Chamberlain look positively brilliant
The Iranians must be thinking: “Allah be praised, rolling these infidels sure is easy.”
The mullah charm offensive and diplomatic charade continues. Meanwhile the centrifuges keep spinning. Obama never intended to “do whatever it takes” to prevent Iran from getting its nuclear weapons. An attack on Iran was never a consideration. The mullahs will have their nuclear bomb within a year. Israel faces the worst strategic crisis of its existence.
The old North Korea method of diplomacy I see.
Remind me again....
Who’s side is Obama on?
...oh, ya..Anybody but America.....
Sanctions will be eased or removed
But their nuclear bomb production will continue, and Israel knows it.
The ME are masters of the dodge and weave.
***Zarif and Rouhani were in New York for the annual United Nations General Assembly and repeated their insistence that Iran has no intention of developing nuclear weapons.***
Sure Z&R - whatever you say...
Always the “surrender monkey” and the UN’s buttboy.
I think that sums up Kerry’s life (besides his betraying us in Vietnam and aiding the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, etc).
So, let me get this straight. Sanctions come and go with the permission of the president?
He and Jane Fonda stopped the Viet Nam war , dealing with Iran is nothing compared to that?s/s/
John Kerry meets Ben Dover ! Iranians will have fun with this dope
“Whos side is Obama on?
...oh, ya..Anybody but America.....”
You are absolutely right — on every issue, when there is a choice, he picks the other side, helping our enemies...
Traitors seem all over nowadays.
Looks like Rouhani did a Putin on Ketchup boy.
Iran has murdered Americans for YEARS,
and Kerry and Obama LOVE THEM FOR IT.
This is treason, abetted by the whoring, drunk,
selfserving US Congress who could not even
seal the border as the they gave al Qaeda MANPADs
and SAMs and sarin.
America will not forget the treason.
