Iranian, US Versions of Deal Contradict Each Other

While US President Barack Obama’s administration has been so busily celebrating the framework deal sealed last Thursday with Iran over its nuclear program, official Iranian statements in Farsi appear to disprove Obama’s claims about what has or hasn’t been agreed.


The New York Post outlined on Saturday the different statements about the agreement. Those statements include one by Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and EU foreign policy head Federica Mogherini, as well as an official Iranian text, a text in French, and US Secretary of State John Kerry’s summary which presents the framework as being a done deal.


The paper notes that Mogherini’s statement and the French text are so vague that they are “ultimately meaningless.”


Meanwhile the Iranian text is careful to state that nothing has been agreed to by the Islamic regime, and is titled as merely a press statement as opposed to the US text entitled “Parameters for a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.”


Examining the bodies of the American and Farsi text, the paper found stark differences, including outright contradictions.
