Historic Iran Deal Aimed At Final Nuclear Resolution – LobeLog – Nov 24, 2013
Geneva — A momentous agreement over Iran’s nuclear program was officially announced shortly after 3:00am by Iranian and French diplomats leaving the lobby of the InterContinental Hotel here on Nov. 24 following more than 4 days of grueling talks.
The deal occurred after years of negotiations with Iran but only 3.5 months after the inauguration of Iran’s moderate President, Hassan Rouhani, who has already presided over several historic foreign policy milestones.
“We just finished many days of hard work,” said Iran’s lead negotiator, Mohammad Javad Zarif, at the night’s first press conference shortly after signing a 4-page agreement with his P5+1 (the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China plus Germany) counterparts at the Palais des Nations.

Iran strikes nuclear deal with world powers – ArabNews – Nov 24, 2013
GENEVA: Iran struck a historic deal Sunday with world powers US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany, agreeing to a temporary freeze of its nuclear program in the most significant agreement between Washington and Tehran in more than three decades of estrangement.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani endorsed the agreement, which commits Iran to curb its nuclear activities for six months in exchange for limited and gradual sanctions relief, including access to $4.2 billion from oil sales. The six-month period will give diplomats time to negotiate a more sweeping agreement.
It builds on the momentum of the public dialogue opened during September’s annual UN gathering, which included a 15-minute phone conversation between US President Barack Obama and Rouhani, who was elected in June.

Rouhani: Nuclear Deal Marks Failure of Enemies’ Attempts to Promote Iranophobia
FARS News Agency – Nov 24, 2013
“The enemy wanted to promote Iranophobia among the world public opinion,” Rouhani told reporters in a press briefing in Tehran on Sunday.
