Nuclear: Iran and world powers reach agreement

Iran and world powers managed to strike a deal on Iran's nuclear program, meeting today in Vienna, according to informed diplomats quoted by Russian agency TASS and the French AFP.  

"They came to a compromise in all aspects. Within a very short [time] parties will announce the results, "he specified a European diplomat, quoted by the Russian news agency.

A diplomat close to the negotiations, which is not named, also told AFP that "the agreement was concluded."

The last plenary meeting between Iran and the so-called Group 5 + 1 - the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (US, Russia, China, France and Britain) plus Germany - opened at 08:30 local (09 30 in Lisbon) at UN headquarters in Vienna.

The last match in the negotiations on the complex dossier will be followed by a press conference.

Iran and the Group 5 + 1 have been negotiating a long-term agreement to ensure that Tehran does not attempt to obtain an atomic bomb getting matched by a lifting of economic sanctions imposed on it.

The foreign ministers of the seven countries involved in the negotiations sought over the last 18 days of intensive talks in Vienna to reach consensus to close this historic agreement.

The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, said today that the achievement of an agreement will be "a triumph of diplomacy" and serve as a "good start" for new international relations.

In a message through the social network Twitter, forbidden in Iran, but whose leaders often use, Hassan Rouhani also stressed that he expects the agreement to be last in the Austrian capital, figure as an instrument to put an end to an era of "exclusion and coercion "in relations between countries.

Iran accepts the visit of inspectors to sites considered suspicious by international authorities to serve to build nuclear bombs and can pierce the insulation that has been subject in recent years.

Tehran also accepted that the sanctions will be lifted can be reintroduced again, if the agreement is not fulfilled.

But not all restrictions will be lifted. The arms embargo purchase, given by the United Nations, will be maintained for another five years as the embargo for the purchase of technology used in missiles, which will continue for another eight years.

However, the agreement did not please everyone. Israel regrets understanding. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tzipi Hotovely, used his Twitter account to express their disagreement, "this agreement is a story providing the axis of evil led by Iran."

Also the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has described the agreement as a "historic mistake", writes Reuters. He was speaking ahead of a meeting with the Dutch Foreign Minister, Bert Koenders, in Jerusalem.  

"Seize the opportunity"

But in the Middle East not all reactions were positive in the United States, the US President did not hide his satisfaction.  

According to Iran is "an opportunity we should not miss," he said today in a statement on the matter, the White House ..

Then Barack Obama made a notice to Congress, ensuring that it will veto any legislative measure that tries to prevent the implementation of the understanding reached now, writes Reuters.

For President of the United States, the agreement will have a check basis. Ie is not sustained only in confidence and will be "irresponsible" the rejection.  

"The agreement offers the opportunity to follow a new path," defended Barack Obama.

However, the Head of State assumes that it does not solve all the issues that divide the two countries and will be held, among others, sanctions related to human rights.
