Iranian Nuclear Deal, Part 3: Sanctions

While the U.S. and its allies expect Iran to fulfill its side of any nuclear deal, Iran also expects something – that international economic sanctions be lifted. The New York Times’ Thomas Erdbrink reports that Iran wants sanctions lifted immediately upon any agreement being made, while the West would first like to see the Islamic Republic hold up its end of the deal:

The pace of sanctions relief is a sticking point. The Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final word on any nuclear deal, has demanded that all sanctions be lifted on the day the agreement is signed. Mr. Rouhani’s timetable would allow the United States, the European Union and the United Nations to wait to lift their sanctions until the day the deal takes effect. The United States and its negotiating partners want the sanctions lifted piecemeal, as Iran meets its obligations under the deal.
