Epigraph:

Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God. (Matthew 5:7-9)

An outline agreement on the future shape of Iran’s nuclear programme has been reached after marathon talks with six major powers in Switzerland.

Under the deal, Iran will reduce its uranium enrichment capacity in exchange for phased sanctions relief.

US President Barack Obama said a “historic understanding” had been reached with Iran.

The world powers and Iran now aim to draft a comprehensive nuclear accord by 30 June.

The framework agreement was announced by the European Union and Iran after eight days of negotiations in Lausanne.

The talks between the so-called P5+1 – the US, UK, France, China and Russia plus Germany – and Iran at Lausanne’s Beau-Rivage Palace hotel continued beyond the original self-imposed deadline of 31 March.

  1. Britain and USA practicing their handshake etiquette. Follow the money, if these two are involved you can guarantee pockets will be getting lined at the top table.

  2. The countries like UAE, Kuwait, Oman , Bahrain , Pakistan and Iraq must appreciate and value this historic peace deal and should make this day as great day of remembrance. Ironically countries and people make war a very big news and cover it extensively but when war is averted a great peace & harmony deal is struck and such news is not news worthy.

  3. I wish and pray that these so-called P 5+1 take some measures and painstakingly resolve the Kashmir and Palestine issues as well.
