The deal reached with world powers and Iran over the Islamic republic’s nuclear program is cast by supporters as a historic treaty, while critics, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, call it a “historic mistake.”
How both sides see the deal:
• It “temporarily freezes” Tehran’s nuclear program.
• Iran must convert or dilute its fuel stocks that are closest to weapons grade, lengthening the breakout time Iran would need to make fissile material for a nuclear bomb….
• Enrichment is capped but not frozen or rolled back, leaving Iran close to a breakout for a bomb.
• The deal allows Iran to claim the West has accepted its “right” to enrich uranium.
