Breaking News: Preliminary Iran Agreement Reached

The reported breakthrough came after an all-night session, followed by further talks a few hours later.

Washington Post:

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Negotiators from Iran and major world powers reached agreement Thursday on a framework for a final agreement to curb Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for relief from international sanctions, participants in the marathon talks said.

They said the sides, including the United States and its key European allies, would promptly start drafting a final accord to be completed by a June 30 deadline.

“Big day,” tweeted Secretary of State John F. Kerry. He said the European Union, the six major world powers and Iran “now have parameters to resolve major issues on nuclear program. Back to work soon on a final deal.”
