The Iranians claim they already received $8 billion in sanction relief on Sunday, a claim denied by our State Department. Billions more are slated for Iran in the first phase of the deal, but it appears that Iran doesn’t have to do anything until the final phase of the deal is worked out. Iran is free to enrich uranium until the final phase is worked out.
The devil is in the details.
The Iranians are now questioning the final phase of the agreement.
Iran says the White House is lying to the American public about the interim nuclear agreement. They contend that the multi-page fact sheet released on the WH website was ‘invalid’, inaccurate and misleads the American public.
According to the free beacon, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham told the Iranian press Tuesday:
“What has been released by the website of the White House as a fact sheet is a one-sided interpretation of the agreed text in Geneva and some of the explanations and words in the sheet contradict the text of the Joint Plan of Action, and this fact sheet has unfortunately been translated and released in the name of the Geneva agreement by certain media, which is not true.”
Tehran says Iran’s right to enrich uranium (for peaceful purposes) is guaranteed in their draft. They said nothing will be agreed to until everything is agreed to.
They object to the final stage talks that ensure the deal is implemented within the next few weeks. They weren’t any more specific.
Why wasn’t the deal implemented immediately?
According to free beacon, there are reports that the U.S. government freed $8 billion in assets on Sunday without the Iranians having done a thing.
The first phase also calls for the release of an additional $7 billion dollars to Iran.
There are also“certain sanctions on gold and precious metals, Iran’s auto sector, and Iran’s petrochemical exports, potentially providing Iran approximately $1.5 billion in revenue” included in the deal. There is $4.2 billion in oil revenue under this deal and $400 million in tuition assistance to Iranian educational institutions.
This sounds like a sucker’s play.
The Iranians are already questioning the agreement only a few days in. This is supposed to be a six-month trial. It is absurd to think that things will get better. Obama should back out of the deal immediately but he won’t, he will continue to let Iran make fools of us.
