‘Framework’ deal reached in Iran nuclear talks

An outline agreement on the future of Iran’s nuclear program has been reached after marathon talks with six major powers in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The European Union and Iran announced the deal after eight days of negotiations.

Iran denies Western claims that they are trying to build a nuclear weapon. It entered negotiations to see sanctions lifted.

The talks between the US, UK, France and Russia plus Germany – and Iran at Lausanne’s Beau-Rivage Palace hotel were supposed to end on March 31st, but got extended in the search for a deal.

Under its terms, Iran would cut its stored centrifuges by two-thirds, and be prevented from developing weapons-grade plutonium, according to US president Barack Obama.

Federica Mogherini, EU foreign policy chief:

“We have reached solutions on key parameters of a joint comprehensive plan of action.”
