Iran nuclear talks to be extended for 4 months

Good job Kerry, give Iran a little more time to get the bomb.

What a joke. Iran is laughing all the way to their nuclear bomb lab.

Iran and six world powers agreed Friday to extend talks over Tehran’s nuclear program until Nov. 24.

In a statement released Friday night, Secretary of State John Kerry, who flew into Vienna a week ago to try and advance the talks, said, “it is clear to me that we have made tangible progress in our comprehensive negotiations, but there are very real gaps in some areas… diplomacy takes time, and persistence is needed to determine whether we can achieve our objectives peacefully.”

Consequently, Kerry said, “we have decided – along with the EU, our P5+1 partners, and Iran – to extend the Joint Plan of Action until November 24, exactly one year since we finalized the first step agreement in Geneva.

“This will give us a short amount of additional time to continue working to conclude a comprehensive agreement.”

Iran’s nuclear program will remain halted during the next four months, Kerry said, and “in return, we will continue to suspend the sanctions we agreed to under the JPOA and will allow Iran access to $2.8 billion dollars of its restricted assets.”
