White House offers to suspend its sanctions against Iran


The White House offered Iran a six months suspension of some of it’s sanctions, if Tehran suspends some of it’s nuclear activities during that same period.

This ’’good will’’ gesture would allow to quickly reach a permanent agreement between the two countries, insisted the US negotiators.

For ten years, the United-States and their allies have been accusing Iran of developing a military nuclear program. Even though it is the country that has been most inspected by international organizations, the slightest evidence was never found to support this assertion. But since Hassan Rohani’s election, Washington seems ready to abandon it’s accusations.
