Tehran, YJC. Ardestani gives his evaluation of what counts for disagreements in Iran’s Vienna talks.

Lawmaker Ahmad Bakhshayesh Ardestani in interview with Mosalas Online said "Mr. Obama and Mr. Rouhani are presidents most willing to strike a comprehensive deal. Mr. Rouhani has joined the diplomacy package with the economy one, interested that as sanctions are revoked, economy may boom, bringing the country out of its standstill. Mr. Obama in turn wants to leave a legacy, that is, to say that is was him who prevented an Iran with nuclear weapons.”

He added "According to the law, all international agreements and contracts have to be passed by the Majlis. But the Rouhani administration bypassed the Majlis by calling the nuclear agreements ‘initial joint action’ and ‘comprehensive joint action’, whereas the reality of the job is what an agreement is. In this joint plan of action what the government has relegated to the Majlis is the additional protocol to which the Majlis may agree, regarding the situations, the time, and what has happened.”

Member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee stated "The number of centrifuges, Arak heavy water, the level of research and development in the nuclear program, the type and time of sanctions revocation are some of the things that Iran and the US seem to disagree on. Iran says that 20 thousand centrifuges have to be kept active and then whatever was produced would be oxidized. In contrast the West keep saying that there should be 4 thousand centrifuges. There is also disagreement on Arak heavy water. They say the nature of the facilities should not be heavy water, whereas Iran says that it has to remain heavy water while it will reduce the amount of the produced plutonium.”

He further pointed out "The Rouhani administration considers the right to enrichment and the removal of the entire sanctions as two of its red lines in talks with the P5+1. The comprehensive agreement between Iran and the Six Majors may be postponed to the second 6 months, but it seems that within the first month of the second 6-month term agreement can be made.”
