Breaking: Iran Nuke Deal 'Sealed'

Officials Report Agreement Has Been Formalized

According to Sky News, Iranian officials are reporting that a deal has finally been reached and "sealed" in the Iran Nuclear talks. 

Six major powers have reached an agreement with Iran on the country's nuclear programme, an Iranian diplomat has said.

Tehran has been granted sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear programme, the source told Reuters.

"All the hard work has paid off and we sealed a deal. God bless our people," he said.

Foreign ministers of the six powers, which include Britain and the US, and Iran are due to meet at 9.30 UK time in Vienna to ratify the deal which has taken months to finalise.

The AP contributes that it is not only Iran who are confirming that the deal is now in place.

The terms of the deal are still breaking online, but one aspect will certainly meet with skepticism in the United States. Iran will be able to formally oppose any request for inspection by the U.N., and inspection will be delayed until there is a resolution by all the powers signing on to the agreement, including Iran. Obviously this presents the opportunity to prevent inspections, or at least to delay them sufficiently to cover up any violations.

Truth Revolt will post more information as it becomes available.

Update 3:30am ET: The AP reports one Israeli official's reaction:

An Israeli Cabinet minister says a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers gives the Islamic Republic a "license to kill."

Miri Regev, a former military spokeswoman who serves as Israel's culture and sports minister, said Tuesday that the deal was "bad for the free world (and) bad for humanity."
