Iran Confirms Secret Side Deal

By Jews News, July 29, 2016

Key restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program imposed under an internationally negotiated deal will start to ease years before the 15-year accord expires, advancing Tehran’s ability to build a bomb even before the end of the pact, according to a document obtained Monday by The Associated Press…. But while formally separate from the bigger nuclear accord, {a diplomat} said that it was in effect an integral part of that pact and had been approved by the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany, the six powers that negotiated the deal with Tehran. Details published earlier outline most restraints on Iran’s nuclear program meant to reduce the threat that Tehran will turn nuclear activities it says are peaceful to making weapons…. And that time frame could shrink even more. While the document doesn’t say what happens with centrifuge numbers and types past year 13, U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz told The AP that Iran will be free to install any number of advanced centrifuges beyond that point…. That will give Iran a huge potential boost in enrichment capacity, including bomb-making should it choose to do so….

Jonathan Tobin wrote about the revelations here at COMMENTARY at the time. Many of the groups whose funding depends on their support of the deal, however, remained silent. The State Department, meanwhile, sought to downplay the secrecy of the side deal or even the suggestion that the document leaked reflected a side deal.
