Iran has final say on nuclear enrichment, says (Iranian FMinister) Zarif (In Conflict with Deal)
Yahoo UK ^ | 30 Nov 13 | AFP

Iran will decide the level of uranium enrichment in its nuclear programme based on its energy and other civilian needs, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in remarks reported Saturday.

His remarks appeared to conflict with the landmark nuclear deal struck with world powers in Geneva last weekend, which states that the enrichment level must be mutually defined and agreed upon by both sides in further negotiations.

"Iran will decide the level of enrichment according to its needs for different purposes," Zarif said late Friday night, according to the official IRNA news agency.

"Only details of the enrichment activities are negotiable," he said, referring to a final accord with the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany -- known as the P5+1 group -- that the parties hope to negotiate within a year.

Israel and Western powers hope the final accord will drastically scale back Iran's enrichment programme, which is currently producing the low-enriched uranium required for electricity and medical isotopes but could be ramped up to produce the highly enriched uranium which is a key element of a nuclear weapon.

Iran has repeatedly said it will not seek nuclear weapons while insisting it has the "right" to enrich uranium under the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

"We have always said we will not allow anyone to determine our needs," Zarif was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency. "But we are prepared to negotiate about it."

Riiiight, just like Obama was prepared to negotiate
over the shut down.

When will people ever learn?

Only failure in the eyes of those who think he was serious about restraining Iran.

But you’re right. If we were assuming someone actually working in the interest of the USA, it would be failure one million and one.

Well, in my estimation they’re definitely some of them.

Well, we have heard the odamnit version and the iranit version and don't know who to believe? So where are the other countries who signed onto this deal and why is the silence so deafening?

This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.

No way that I’d believe our government first. They are even worse than the Reagan maxim:

“Mistrust but Verify”

So the entities are going to talk for A WHOLE YEAR to come to an agreement about the level of enrichment Iran can have. Iran will have their bomb shortly so sure, agree to talk for a year. I am convinced Israel knows the truth through their Mossad activities and they aren't waiting a year to take out those facilities. This stupid agreement to agree within a year means nothing. George Bush would spit at Iran, that would be his agreement.

I’m sure he thinks he was born to rule, and we were born to be serfs.

The raggies are redefining the deal after-the-fact and lying their turbans off. This queers the whole deal, and takes everybody back to status quo ante six months ago.

Get me Tactical Air Command on the covered line.

Obama/Kerry want a deal with Iran so bad - any deal - that they will agree to anything at all, just so they can say they got a deal.

Not everyone, the Iranians are now ahead by six months.

I thought I’d seen enough foolish foreign policy from
the Clinton administration but this, this is mind boggling.

Community organizers and wealthy senators make such good negotiators don’t they.

These idiots either don’t know what they don’t know or this is all intentional.
I’m betting intentional on barry’s party and just plain collosal ignorance on Kerry’s party.
