U.S. appreciates Iran's implementation of nuclear deal

Though the document has not been made public, all media outlets affirm that Iran will rapidly move toward industrial enrichment of uranium after 10 years from implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), he added. "Hopefully, when the whole document is published, it will become apparent where we will be in 15 years' time".

The confidential document is the only text linked to last year's deal between Iran and six foreign powers that hasn't been made public, although US officials say members of Congress who expressed interest were briefed on its substance. It was leaked to the agency by a diplomat who has been working on issues surrounding Iran's nuclear program for over a decade.

"Whether the original deal truly can prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons capability always was uncertain, despite the 15 years of restrictions on, and monitoring of, Iranian nuclear research and development", Harris said. The document says that 11 to 13 years into the 15-year agreement, Iran can replace the 5,060 inefficient centrifuges it now uses to enrich uranium with up to 3,500 advanced machines.

Two diplomats providing the information Monday demanded anonymity because they weren't authorized to do so. That indicates a possible end to all restrictions on the number and kind of centrifuges even while constraints on other, less-proliferation prone nuclear activities remain until year 15.

The nuclear agreement "removes the restrictions on Iran's nuclear program based on dates certain, rather than on changes in Iran's aggressive behavior, including its support for terrorism around the world", the senior official said. This deal was touted as a means to push back the possibility of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon; unfortunately, it has unquestionably allowed Iran too much flexibility to pursue its nuclear ambitions.

"The deal doesn't solve the Iranian nuclear problem, but rather delays and intensifies it", the official said.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday scorned U.S. global influence as impotent, boasting that Iran got its way in a landmark nuclear deal and that the "US can not do a damn thing" to intervene in its affairs.

"The United States disagrees strongly with elements of this report, including that its content goes beyond the appropriate scope".
