The International Atomic Energy Agency has signed a roadmap with Iran under which they will allegedly resolve all inspection issues by year-end.
But one facility to which the IAEA will apparently not be granted access is the Parchin military compound where Iran likely tested nuclear weapons.VIENNA, July 14 (Reuters) - The U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency signed a roadmap with Iran on Tuesday with the aim of resolving all outstanding questions it has about the country's nuclear programme by the end of the year, the IAEA's director general said on Tuesday.
Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members and Germany) have ratified a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that ensures the path ahead for cooperation.
"The JCPOA includes removal of all sanctions, including banking, financial and energy embargoes," he said.
He said the agreement includes the JCPOA along with five annexes, including one on sanctions and another one on nuclear cooperation.
Zarif said the text will be approved by the UN Security Council in coming days.
None of the Iranian nuclear facilities will be dismantled or decomissioned.
Furthermore, nuclear research and development activities on all types of centrifuges, including advanced IR-6 and IR-8 machines, will continue.
The nuclear-related economic and financial restrictions imposed by the United States and the European Union (EU) targeting the Iranian banking, financial, oil, gas, petrochemical, trade, insurance and transport sectors will at once be annulled with the beginning of the implementation of the agreement.
The arms embargo imposed against the Islamic Republic will be annulled and replaced with certain restrictions, which themselves will be entirely removed after a period of five years.
Future access to Iran's Parchin military site, which the agency had repeatedly sought, is part of a separate "arrangement", Yukiya Amano said.

"By 15 December 2015, the Director General will provide... the final assessment on the resolution of all past and present outstanding issues," he added. Hmmm......Anyone believing this.......I've got a bridge for sale.

The only thing we need to “verify” about #IranDeal is what Obama was thinking when he agreed to it. This deal is an absolute disaster.— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) July 14, 2015
Obama: "We have stopped the spread of nuclear weapons in this region." Funny way of saying you just set off a nuke arms race.— Philip Klein (@philipaklein) July 14, 2015
