State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Tuesday that the six-month interim agreement with Iran has not yet started.

The next step is “a continuation of technical discussions at a working level so that we can essentially tee up the implementation of the agreement,” she said.

It’s not clear when the agreement will come into force, but in the meantime Psaki said the United States is “respecting the spirit of the agreement in pressing for sanctions not to be put in place” and expects that the same is coming from Iran’s end.

However, Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, told Iran’s Parliament on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic would continue to build the Arak heavy water plant in contravention of the announced agreement. The previous day, Iran said that the United States had not distributed an accurate account of the agreement.

  1. As far as the Obama admin. and the State Dept. are concerned the "six month clock" on iran will not start until after the 2016 elections and by then who will give a rat's a** what the ayatolahs have done with the continuing uranium enrichment program which by the way they will NOT stop under any circumstances avec sanctions or sans sanctions because by then they will also have the "muslim bomb".
