star this property answer text <p>Under the terms of the agreement – in addition to the restrictions on Iran’s enrichment capacity – Iran will be limited to a maximum stockpile of 300kg of uranium enriched to up to 3.67% for 15 years. Iran's breakout period will be over 12 months for 10 years, and is not expected to fall to zero afterwards. The agreement will also lead to significantly increased transparency, in particular through implementation of the Additional Protocol and Modified Code 3.1. This will increase the IAEA’s ability to identify a breakout attempt; and significantly increase the time that the international community has to respond in such a scenario.</p> more like this

A successful outcome to a peace process would be a durable reduction in violence in Afghanistan, while also maintaining the progress made in Afghanistan since 2001. Ultimately, the process will need to be Afghan-led and Afghan-owned, and we support them in their efforts to bring the conflict to an end.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The nuclear agreement reached by the E3+3 and Iran on 14 July is a potentially historic achievement. Iran has accepted far reaching limits on its nuclear activities including its stockpiles of enriched uranium, centrifuge numbers, and nuclear research and development. When the (International Atomic Energy Agency) IAEA has verified that these measures have been taken, it will benefit from phased sanctions relief. The aim of the agreement is to ensure that the Iranian nuclear programme will be for solely peaceful purposes. As such, we hope that it can make an important contribution to nuclear non-proliferation in the Middle East and to the goal of a Middle East Zone free from Weapons of Mass Destruction.</p> more like this
