But Tehran's going to delay it's what Tehran always -- -- It has always claimed that the program is for generating energy and medicine not bombs but Iran has been stonewalling the international atomic energy agency off forever.
The announcement of a possible breakthrough comes on the eve of planned nuclear talks between Iran and six nations in Baghdad.
Fox -- chief correspondent John from -- with a so -- -- -- -- are cooperating again this is great.
Yes well a lot of the negotiators seem to think that it is great what they say.
Is that this seems to be a step in the right direction despite the fact that this deal.
Would only not allow the inspectors back into one particular site that's all it applies to.
Despite the fact that the agreement itself hasn't yet to be signed.
The head of the international atomic energy agency says he believes it is quote an important breakthrough.
And he says Iran's chief negotiator -- -- legally.
In good faith listen.
There remain some differences.
But -- identity elaborate it.
The defense will not be the -- -- -- to reach an agreement.
Last time I say it.
-- -- -- -- This -- I'm saying.
-- -- -- -- But all of this will obviously be tested to a much greater degree.
In those talks between Iran and other nations including the United States that open in Baghdad tomorrow -- the United States the United -- leaders seem a little more skeptical that whoever that was a whole lot more schedule that was ahead of the international atomic energy agency but we just -- in the last few minutes.
From the White House spokesman Jay Connie who has said what US officials have said so often -- that they will judge Iran.
By its actions not its woods and that message was repeated at the state the -- about the spokeswoman Victoria new -- earlier today -- The announcement of the deal is one thing but the implementation is what we're going to be looking for referral of Iran to.
Truly follow through and provide the access to all of the locations the documents -- the personnel that the IAEA requires.
In -- to determine whether Iran's program is exclusively for peaceful purposes.
And as if to confirm that skepticism Iran announced today that it is now placed.
-- fueled rocket into the -- of a nuclear reactor in Tehran.
That fuel rod contains pellets that a 20% enriched uranium that's the key hit that is not weapons grade.
Uranium but it is clearly a step towards that that's what this is all about stopping Iran enriching uranium and yet they continue to do it.
While saying on the other hand will do a deal.
Of course it is the island's great thank you didn't think -- I'm feeling much better -- -- -- -- -- of the deal the former UN weapons spectrum tend to van joins Jonathan immunize an expert on.
Weapons of mass destruction currently works executive director of the international council for life sciences and non profit organization focusing on.
Global biological security and safety -- -- -- nice to -- was always this is a load of it right.
Quote set me and we have to take.
Anything we hear from Iran with a large -- -- -- getting inspectors on the ground to.
Can provide some useful information about what's going on brightest with some useful context with the Iranian scientist so long as we don't expect too much of it.
-- believe that we're getting -- -- of a story from.
From what the inspectors.
But tip -- -- isn't this just another case of them clearly playing for time they let inspectors in they'd let them go to one side they -- probably don't let them see what they really wanna say.
And -- back at square one in a couple of months time.
Certainly it's not what you would need to get a full picture of the entire nuclear program.
To do that you'd have to dips go to all the sites and you'd have to be have to stipulate that you want to go to sites that the hearings hadn't picked Fred.
So you can check out -- -- is that suspicious activities.
Occurring elsewhere getting into one site to learn doesn't give you any degree of confidence that you -- the full picture of the nuclear activities in the country that's true.
-- is -- your estimation that there is a way to stop Iran from doing whatever Iran wants to do and if so what is it.
Well it's very difficult to -- -- country during what he wants to short of military intervention.
That the best way of going forward perhaps is to try and change the motivations as to why it's trying to acquire these weapons.
But only region where it sits that's that's a very difficult proposition -- stopping Iran from getting nuclear weapons is a really tough -- -- -- and with us from capitol -- it's always nice to see you thank you.
