CHICAGO, IL – U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) issued the following statement on separate factsheets by the United States and Iran that offer dueling and often contradictory frameworks for a comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear program:

“When you read the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s factsheet on a final deal’s parameters, you immediately understand why the American version explicitly warns that important details ‘are still subject to negotiation’ and ‘nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.’

“As Administration officials conceded today, the United States and Iran still do not agree on many basic issues. A number of questions still need to be answered:  Will the final deal will lift economic sanctions against Iran immediately or in phases over time? Will it require Iran to ship abroad its stockpile of enriched uranium into foreign control? Will it permit Iran to perfect advanced uranium enrichment by enriching a gas like germanium instead of uranium? Will it allow inspectors to conduct snap inspections anywhere, anytime in Iran? Will it require Iran to come clean about its nuclear program’s past and present secret weaponization activities?

“The bottom line is Iran has not agreed to a political framework that addresses all parameters of a comprehensive agreement, but rather has put out a dueling framework that contradicts the one put out by the United States.”


The U.S. version of the framework for a final deal is available online.

The Iranian version of the framework is available in Farsi and in English translation.
