World powers have voiced consent to the installation of a new generation of centrifuges for research purposes by Iran, senior Iranian parliamentary officials announced on Monday. “The new generation of centrifuges for research purposes was the most important remaining issue in the talks between Iran and the P5+1 in recent months,” said Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission. “At last, the P5+1 accepted yesterday that Iran’s operating a new generation of centrifuges for research does not run counter to the Geneva agreement.”  (Fars-Iran)


IAEA Gains More Iran Access, But Not Enough for Bomb Probe – Fredrik Dahl (Reuters)

    The International Atomic Energy Agency’s increased access in Iran to monitor an agreement with world powers still falls short of what it says it needs to investigate suspicions that Tehran may have worked on designing an atomic bomb.

    Western diplomats and nuclear experts say the IAEA needs to carry out its long-stalled inquiry into tests by Iran that could be used for nuclear arms development, partly to make sure that any such work has ceased. 


U.S. Concerned about Iran-Russia Oil Deal – Roberta Rampton (Reuters)

    The White House said on Monday it was concerned about a recent report that Iran and Russia are negotiating an oil-for-goods swap worth $1.5 billion a month that would significantly boost Iran’s oil exports.

    Russian and Iranian sources said the deal could see Russia buy as much as 500,000 barrels a day of Iranian oil in exchange for Russian equipment and goods.

    “If the reports are true, such a deal would raise serious concerns as it would be inconsistent with the terms of the P5+1 agreement with Iran and could potentially trigger U.S. sanctions,” said Caitlin Hayden, spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council.
