Negotiators representing major powers and the government of Iran have finally reached AN agreement on something. World powers offered a series of concessions, including relief from sanctions in return forf acceptance of minimum limits on uranium enrichment. The world powers agreed to end its demands that all of Iran’sstockpile of about 170kg of 20% enrichment uranium be shipped out of the country, allowing Iran enough to fuel a resaearch reactor. The ability to ship petrovchemical products would ease burdens on the Iranian government. A western diplomat said: “I think we now have traction to get into proper detailed negotiations.”
As I recall, the main objection by Republicans of Chuck Hagel was his emphasis on negotations with Iran. Gee, it turns out that Hagel was right and the great Lindsay Graham and John McCain were wrong!!
