Iranian FM rejects U.S. demand to halt sensitive nuclear activity for 10 years

(JNS.org) Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called U.S. President Barack Obama’s demand that Iran freeze sensitive nuclear activity for at least a decade as part of an agreement with world powers “unacceptable.” Zarif’s statement, made in a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Switzerland, came a day after Obama told Reuters that Iran needs to commit to halting its sensitive nuclear work for 10 years in order for a deal to be reached. The Iranian Fars news agency quoted Zarif saying that Iran “will not accept excessive and illogical demands.”
