Iran and world powers to announce partial nuclear agreement

World powers and Iran have reached agreement on a partial political framework deal, the European Union will announce on Thursday.


Preparing for the announcement, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the parties had “found solutions” after eight days of marathon nuclear talks. The German Foreign Office said that negotiators had reached “agreement on a framework for a final agreement,” while the EU’s high representative for foreign affairs, Federica Mogherini, declared “good news” on Twitter.


An announcement is expected from the EU and Iran, followed by press statements from Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry.


They are expected to declare that enough progress has been made in nearly two years of negotiations to continue them until June 30, at which point they hope to seal a comprehensive nuclear accord.


Western officials said they were unsure just how much of an agreement would be made public. Before the announcement, Reuters reported that two-thirds of Iran’s current enrichment capacity will be suspended and monitored for ten years under the agreement.
