The NY Times and the AP reported today on a proposal in Geneva now being considered which would allow Iranians to continue nuclear production with limitations for ten years but with a corresponding easing of sanctions.
The Associated Press (AP) reported that a potential deal would phase out restrictions on Iran’s uranium enrichment activities in the final years which would potentially allow them to build a nuclear weapon unobstructed towards the end of the term.
The core idea would be to reward Iran for good behavior over the last years of any agreement, gradually lifting constraints on its uranium enrichment and slowly easing economic sanctions, AP reports.
In other words, they can not only be a nuclear threshold state with the the ability to eventually have the bomb. Sanctions, our one bargaining chip, would be thing of the past.
