Ongoing negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 seems to be nearing a major breakthrough, with reports that the US and Iranian officials are discussing a compromise that would remove a major obstacle from the deal.
The compromise centers on the centrifuges, and would have the US agreeing Iran gets to keep its civilian enrichment program in return for Iran reconfiguring its centrifuges to be much less efficient.
Though officials aren’t saying how close this compromise is to being finalized, the specificity of the plan suggests it’s pretty far through the negotiating phase, moreso than any previous reports.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says that the gaps between the two sides are getting much narrower, and that he believes that a nuclear deal is getting closer to being finalized.
