Iran struck a temporary deal in Geneva on November 24 to "create the environment for a comprehensive solution" on the nuclear dispute with the so-called P5+1 countries -- Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States. The following are terms of the deal as reported by international media.
* Iran will be allowed to enrich uranium up to 5-percent purity, but must halt production of near-20 percent-enriched uranium and disable the centrifuge process used to produce it;
* Start to neutralize its near-20-percent-enriched uranium stockpile, either by diluting it to less than 5 percent or converting it to a form that cannot be further enriched;
* Limit centrifuge production to what is required to replace damaged machines;
* Not enrich uranium in roughly half of installed centrifuges at its Natanz nuclear facility and three-quarters of the centrifuges installed at its Fordow site;
* Not build additional enrichment facilities;
* Not commission, fuel, or add reactor components to its heavy-water reactor at Arak, and must halt the production and additional testing of fuel for the reactor.
World Powers Must:
* Provide "limited, temporary, targeted, and reversible" sanctions relief. The total value of the relief is estimated to be between $6 billion and $7 billion;
* Suspend sanctions on Iran's petrochemical exports as well as on goods and services for use in its automotive industry;
* Suspend sanctions on Iran's import and export of gold and other precious metals;
* License "expeditiously" the supply of spare parts and services for Iran's civil aviation sector;
* Pause efforts to further limit purchases of crude oil from Iran by the six economies that still do so;
* Take steps to ease Iran's access to $4.2 billion in restricted Iranian funds. The first installment, amounting to $550 million, is scheduled to be released on February 1, contingent on the IAEA confirming that Iran is fulfilling its commitments.
* Not impose further nuclear-related sanctions.
