Iran to start eliminating uranium stockpile January 20, White House says

By Catherine E. Shoichet

Save the date: Iran has pledged to start eliminating some of its uranium stockpile on January 20, the White House said Sunday.

That gives an official start time for the six-month interim deal with Iran, which was first announced in November.

"As of that day, for the first time in almost a decade, Iran's nuclear program will not be able to advance, and parts of it will be rolled back, while we start negotiating a comprehensive agreement to address the international community's concerns about Iran's program," U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement Sunday.

Iranian officials also confirmed the start date for the deal, state media reported.

      You've only been in the middle east under the pose of being in the military. I can expect that 90% of the contact you have is vehemently anti-US simply out of your job disposition: You are the tool that the US uses to destroy societies, so naturally, you're going to get that... would it be too much to point out how intellectually handicapped it was of you to make such a statement?

      Liberals just got Iran to give up some Uranium, which is more than all the self proclaimed Conservatives ever accomplished.
      Funny how Obama has accomplished everything the Conservatives failed at.

      That's odd because the vast majority of extremists are conservative... They just happen to be religious conservatives... Anders' Brevik was a conservative Christian just as Osama bin Laden was a Conservative Muslim... Go look it up. Your ignorance is appalling...

    Neither this article or the "full story" states where its stock pile will be eliminated to. Inquiring minds want to know. How 'bout the DPRK?

    Middle East and Iran do not need nuclear technology, they have oil and gas. Thanks god with Iran's decision to scale down her nuclear program, entire region is nuclear it is time to work on Pakistan's nuclear program.

      Oh yes they do, Phunnie boy. Iran needs nuclear technology in order to generate electricity just as South Africa and North Korea does. We sorely need to eliminate these stupid "sanctions" as they produce nothing but hardship and hunger. In fact, they need to be condemned at the UN as inhumane!!!

        Go hide in a bunker, chicken little.... Nukes are obsolete. They are only good for keeping people from invading your country, ie- a defensive deterrence. No one will use them offensively... threatening nukes is akin to holding a gun to your head when surrounded by police...

      Israel anybody?... and in case you missed the science of the last 60 years, oil and gas are a none option due due to what they do to the environment and humanity's ability to live peacefully and in good health.... Solar and wind have almost caught up, and we are 20 years away from nuclear fusion... 20 years is just enough time for oil, gas, and Nukes to destroy us. If we can get past 20 years from now, it'll be a miracle, but we'll be ok...

    America is the root of all terror. America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.
    In 1953 America overthrow Iran's democratic government Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a brutal dictator Shah. America helped Shah of Iran to establish secret police and killed thousands of Iranian people.
    During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
    In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.
    Now America is a failed state with huge debt. Its debt will be 22 trillion by 2015.

    This is great news indeed as long as the insane, money grubbing, right-wing politicians don't sabotage it. Unfortunately, those fools who plan to vote for further economic sanctions(the politics of hunger) like to earn their money in the form of bribes! These people are totally amoral and care only for themselves!
