Iran Nuclear Deal Done (-20% Uranium Production For $6-7bn Lifted Sanctions)

Tyler Durden's picture


UPDATE: Details of the deal are emerging including $4.2bn in FX

Despite earlier denials from Iran's Deputy FinMin, EU, Iran, and US officials have confirmed:


There are no details yet - but an interim agreement has been reached to 'roll back' some of Iran's nuclear program in exchange for a lifting of some sanctions. Close U.S. ally Israel opposes the deal as too generous to an enemy it sees as a mortal threat. Israel is not a party to the talks. President Obama will address the nation at 1015ET to take a victory lap (perhaps this foreign victory will lift his domestic approval rating off record lows)...




The Iranian President seems pleased...



But not so much The Israelis:




Some details on the deal...

From AlJazeera:




and WaPo,

Close U.S. ally Israel opposes the deal as too generous to an enemy it sees as a mortal threat. Israel is not a party to the talks.




The proposed deal offered to Iran would reportedly allow limited uranium enrichment, although under tight restrictions and heavy international monitoring. But Western officials have balked at recognizing a legal "right" to uranium enrichment, hoping instead to craft language in the final agreement that acknowledges the right of all countries to pursue nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Zarif appeared to endorse that approach publicly last week.


The sides also continued to haggle over details of the limited sanctions relief to be offered to Iran in return for scaling back its nuclear program, diplomats said. The relief would reportedly include freeing up a small portion of Iran's overseas currency accounts and easing other trade restrictions.


The most painful sanction, affecting Iran's oil and banking sectors, would remain until the end of the deal's first phase, depending on Iran's willingness to accept permanent curbs on its nuclear program, Western officials said.

The President deep in negotiation:




Via Al Jazeera,

Iran and six world powers have reached an agreement on curbing Iran's nuclear programme in exchange for limited sanctions relief, several delegations in the talks said on Sunday.


"We have reached an agreement," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif announced on his Twitter feed.


Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull speaking from Geneva said "marathon talks have come to an end, the French foreign minister gave a thumbs up as he departed the Intercontinental hotel.


"Foreign ministers of the P5+1 negotiation with Iran will be going to Geneva's UN headquarters where they will announce details of the deal," he said. "There are no details yet, but a interim agreement has been struck to roll back some of Iran's nuclear programme."


"It is extrordinarily significant," he added.


The Israelis initial response (via the Jewish Global Advocay website):

A diplomatic solution is unquestionably the preferred approach to resolving the Iranian nuclear issue. But for years Iran has maintained an indisputable posture of deceit and defiance towards the United Nations, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and nations around the world, including, centrally, the P5+1.


Given this history, and the concomitant lack of trust, the P5+1 will need to be ever vigilant in determining whether Iranian leaders are, in fact, sincere and will fulfill their part of the deal, or will rather play for time while trying to advance their nuclear program.


Serious questions for us to consider in evaluating the merits of this agreement with Iran include:


-- How do America’s closest allies in the Middle East view the deal, since, after all, they are the nations most immediately threatened by the prospect of Iran's belligerence, nuclear weapons capability and delivery systems?


-- Does the agreement preserve, explicitly or implicitly, an Iranian “right” to enrich uranium? And, specifically, what are the implications for permitting Iran to continue to enrich uranium to 3.5% during the six-month interim deal?


-- Are there precise, satisfactory monitoring arrangements for halting all construction, inside and outside, at the plutonium facility in Arak?


-- Is Iran permitted to continue building centrifuges, for potential installation later -- say, at the end of the six-month interim deal -- to enhance still further its enrichment capability?


-- Is Iran required to provide full access to all of its enrichment facilities, centrifuges and nuclear material holdings, including yellow cake?


-- Does Iran have to declare and allow inspections of all work related to nuclear-weapons development, as the IAEA has identified, including triggers, computer simulations of nuclear explosions, ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads?


-- Have the six world powers received any concrete commitment on Tehran’s involvement in the brutal war in Syria, support for Hezbollah, and efforts to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles?


Ultimately, the true test of this agreement will be the ability of the world powers and UN agencies to verify Iranian compliance, including openness to, and full cooperation with, regular, intrusive inspections of all of its nuclear facilities.


Meanwhile, we believe that existing sanctions should remain in place and new sanctions, whose trigger date would not necessarily be immediate, should be pursued to underscore the seriousness of America’s determination -- and the consequences of an Iranian failure to act in good faith.


Tangible deeds, not poetic words, will ultimately determine whether Iran has embarked on a new path of cooperation and compliance, or is pursuing the same aggressive and destabilizing policies, which pose such a threat to regional and global security, simply wrapped in new packaging.

Will be a fun day in a few hours.

Oil is already down quite a bit, we will see when Tokyo opens how far down it is by Chinese bids. Equities in EU likely will rally because of the sudden influx of new swaps from a fresh currency to debase. As mentioned last week ECB inflation projections were heavily dependant on oil inflation. What's 4MM bbl's of Fateh light going to do to the brent pits this month. Expect those GDP estimates to fall in line with the bottom end of the IMF by January and/or the fizzled Black Friday numbers. But the MOMO's will get their "christmas rally" on crude's weakness, so all is well in the OECD.

I wonder who started  the pressure to get this deal done. Funny how just a few months ago we were seeing smoke signals from the Telgraph and WSJ related to potential defaults in NOC entities of Iran such as their National Natural Gas Company, and the potential firesale of assets co-operated in the UK North Sea. Assets that provide heavy cash flows to the UK Gov. Things that make you go hmmm...

Executive summary is that nuclear rogues can usurp all negotiations with allies in the new normal. Canada's free trade deal & China energy export strategy is toast. 15 years of kow-towing to USA imperialism just got 1 up'ed by Iran gaining preferred oil & gas export status under this new Accord. Saudi Arabia & Israel both were hoping that continued pressure would enable them to shift spending from arms purchases into domestic infrastructure going into 2020 ? Now ? Expect those arms orders to be doubled assuming this goes the way of the Food for Oil program. I'm curious to see if this gives sufficent breathing room to the Obama administration on the expected December jobs report and what sort of blowback will happen on joint-pork projects Obama burdened on their old-normal allies. F-35 as a share of Israeli GDP comes to mind.

Expect Iran to take these hard dollars and reinvest into their ECCW capabilities as fast as the petrodollars come through the Russian banking conduit. 0At the end of the day this smells like a scandal in the making: A few vested interests were on the verge of default and got their assets removed from the embargo ring-fence to prevent a UK soverign bankruptcy filing. When you get high up enough, I guess rackateering is just classified as Accords and political engagement. Good to know.

How Canada and Mexico respond to their Free Trade deals with the EU/Chinese investments being co-opted to Iran for preferential status on oil & gas imports will be telling this week. The radio silience out of India, Iran's largest export partner and dollar recycling conduit is also going to be interesting.

Pity we lack WaPO editors competent enough to tackle these issues. No hard questions asked for the administration or Sukov officials please.

That would be followed up by this interesting group as well: in case anyone was wondering out there "if Jewish History even exists?" And the answer is "indeed it does." That "exodus" could be construed as bringing about the collapse of the Soviet Union. Is this an American "exodus" as well? stay tuned...

Whoever thinks the deal was done without approval is missing out the details. The population is getting harder to support the wars, either thanks to internet or to the fact that recent  false flags are planned without any imagination. So the negotiation and slowing down of Iran is a good deal, whatever they publicly say.

Israel might have a shred of credibility if it actually ratified or abided by the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. But then again, it would have to play by the same rules that it demands other countries follow. Unpossible.

I dont know if the Al-Saud family is happy with this current development, they have found a new ally with Israel that a strike against Iran is imminent in the near future. This however is the second blowback to Bander and his cohorts imo. First was Syria, now this! They must be mad by now.

of course not to mention the "Evil Speculators" and "Death Merchants", their business is going down, which means that Ben and Yellen must QE 200bn/month at least to offset the loses.

Rick64's picture

Not the main motive, but a strong one.

6] ThePresident of Iran has stressed that it is important for the Central Bank of Iran not to fall under private control, since it would not benefit the Iranian people

The United States imposed additional financial sanctions against Iran, effective 1 July 2013. An administration official explained that according to the new Executive Order “significant transactions in the rial will expose anyone to sanctions,” and predicted “it should cause banks and exchanges to dump their rial holdings.

 This would cause a flood of excess of currency thus a devaluation of their currency resulting in high inflation. 

The United States responded and President Carter issued Executive Order 12170 in November 1979 freezing about $12 billion in Iranian assets, including bank deposits, gold and other properties. Some assets — Iranian officials say $10 billion, U.S. officials say much less — still remain frozen pending resolution of legal claims arising from the revolution.   

Still Frozen after 3 decades???

As of early 2008, the targeted banks, such as Bank Mellat, had been able to replace banking relationships with a few large sanction-compliant banks with relationships with a larger number of smaller non-compliant banks.[14] The total assets frozen in Britain under the EU (European Union) and UN sanctions against Iran are approximately 976,110,000 pounds ($1.64 billion).[15] In 2008, the US Treasury ordered Citigroup Inc. to freeze over $2 billion held for Iran in Citigroup accounts

] As at 2013, only $30 billion to $50 billion of its foreign exchange reserves (i.e. roughly 50% of total) is accessible because of the international sanctions.

Under pressure from the US, 12 Chinese banks have reduced ties with Iranian banks since early September 2007, but five of them resumed commercial ties in mid-January 2008. In mid-February 2008

Manipulation and double standards, How dare Iran use noclear weapons as a deterrant after 3 decades of fair treatment.. Just because it has worked for the U.S., Russia, France, Pakistan, India, and the list goes on. Overr 3 decades of sanctions. Why? 

The nuclear program of Iran was launched in the 1950s with the help of the United States as part of the Atoms for Peace program.[1] The participation of the United States and Western European governments in Iran's nuclear program continued until the 1979 Iranian Revolutionthat toppled the Shah of Iran.

 They lost their puppet and their control since 1979.

...Most likely, Potus would rather continue killing off our Planet to cover up the soon to be announced Obamacare as a complete disaster.

Foolish, stupid, idiotic, moronic, doomed to failure, and typical of obama. The only thing to be gained is a slight delay and that only if they actually comply. In fact, they are more likely to use the new revenue to speed the program.

From what I've read, both US and Israeli intelligence concede that there is no Iranian nuclear weapon program. Additionally, as far as the terms of this agreement, Iran is in compliance with most of them and has already been taking steps which would put them in compliance with the rest.

Do you have any evidence to support your claim or are you simply parroting the lies of the hasbara talking points?

Not to put too fine of a point on this, but it's a good day for the people of Israel as well.

As far as Netanyahu and the Israeli government, though, yes, it's a setback, and we can expect them to continue screeching and throwing feces like the belligerent chimps that they are.

here is the hopey changey scenario. it is naive to think the looming loonyness of bibi was not a subject of concern at the table especially since the french assured the world that an agreement with iran will guarantee bibi will go off his meds. so what was agreed upon for a response? i think russia and china warned the usa that support for an israeli strike would result in the annihilation of israel but the usa must also allow 3 days of carpet bombing israel in retaliation so they know who runs the show now. i wonder if nutandyahoo is smart enough to see the trap.

The cynical view................

Looks like Israel was playing a carefully planned pre-agreed role of the yapping puppy-dog, standing on the edges and stamping its feet at anything other than a complete surrender/cessation of nuclear activity by Iran, which the latter would never agree to. Israel's yapping must have helped Iran to do a deal since any deal which apparently leaves Israel angry must be OK.

No info yet on whether Iran will cease selling oil/gas in currencies other than USD...

And there's the small matter of the planned gas pipeline from Iran to Syria...

Iran Nuclear Deal Fact Sheet: Suspend Certain Sanctions On Gold And Precious Metals

 ZeroHedge reports Iran Deal Fact Sheet and among other provisions certain sanctions on gold and precious metals will be suspended. Will it bring more stability to the region and provide less excuses to stimulate the economy starting another war? Is this the turning point for the infamous "plan to liberate" seven countries in the Middle East? It all remains to be seen, including reactions from Israel and Saudi Arabia. Now all recent announcements from China:  PBOC Says No Longer in China's Interest to Increase Reserves. - can be taken in the new light? Are US Treasury holders already using their economic power in the Financial War following after The Currency Wars?   We will be monitoring the implications for the Gold market next week following this development and after the groundbreaking announcements from China.   Jim Rickards was twitting about his take on this deal:

10h As expected, the U.S.-Iran nuke deal gives the right to buy again.

  Peter Schiff: On Taper, China's Bombshell Announcements For Treasuries, Dollar And Gold GLD, MUX, TNR.v, GDX

"Peter Schiff talks about the bombshell of the year - China has announced the Mother Of All Tapering -  PBOC Says No Longer in China's Interest to Increase Reserves. China is ready to reduce its balance sheet and they do not have to sell any US Treasuries - during the operation Twist they have used the golden opportunity and rolled over the long term treasuries into the shorter maturities. China can just allow US to repay maturing US Treasuries. We do not think here that they will accept Bitcoin. They have made this announcement after the record buying of Gold and some people are estimating that official Gold reserves are much higher than officially recognised today."

From a psychopath who's military has no other choice but to back down if it doesn't want to get it's ass shellacked!

But this headlines is correct Mark Knoller & Co. will make him a hero by telling us that the annihilation of more than 100,000 Syrians was the Nixonian version of detente that made PEACE possible.

What a load of shit we are!

Inmate of the open-air prison run by lunatics and populated almost entirely by zombies is seeking pen-pal because God gave Eve to Adam … and Aldous Huxley gave someone to Winston Smith.

For mutual support in these trying times, am seeking fellow non-zombie intelligent, open-minded, and well-informed inmate for discussing topics of mutual interest, such as:

  1. Both actual and notional nuclear accidents, and nuclear technology of all sorts;

  2. Historical Revisionism of WW1 and WW2 per Harry Elmer Barnes, 1889–1968;

  3. John Kenneth Galbraith as a two-handed economist;

  4. Bankers v. The People going way back to Andrew Jackson;

  5. contemporary Capitalist Crisis as predicted by Karl Marx;

  6. 1984, Alice in Wonderland, and The Wizard of Oz as works of history;

  7. Newspeak, shunning, strawman, etc. as effective social controls;

  8. as island of sanity, albeit sorely lacking collegiality; and

  9. identifiable weaknesses in the prison system which might allow its escape.

The critical part of this is how we verify that they are complying. If adequate verification isn't there then this is an exercise in futility.

I'd imagine it will be done the same way it's been done for years, with IAEA inspectors on the ground monitoring the whole nuclear research program. I can't imagine why that would change.
