Confusion over nuclear deal as Iran protests White House statement

Despite the highly touted Iranian nuclear deal announced by the Obama administration over the weekend, the two sides still can’t seem to agree on what it is they agreed to.

The aftermath of the deal struck early Sunday in Geneva has been marked by confusion. According to Iranian media, the country’s Foreign Ministry is now claiming that the White House put out an invalid fact sheet about the agreement.

A ministry spokeswoman called it a “one-sided interpretation of the agreed text,” and said parts of it “contradict” the actual plan, according to Fars News Agency.

The Foreign Ministry did not specify what language might have clashed with their interpretation of the agreement, but called the White House statement a “modified version of the deal” — and released their own version of the plan.

That document, among other distinctions, recognizes Iran’s “right to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes,” something the White House statement does not mention.

That appears to be one lingering sticking point between the two countries. Immediately after the deal was announced, Iranian officials were claiming that the agreement both recognized their right to enrich uranium and took military force off the table.

Speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Secretary of State John Kerry disputed both claims, calling them “not accurate.”
