WASHINGTON A senior Obama administration official says the nuclear deal with Iran does not include recognition of Iran's right to enrich uranium.
That had been a sticking point in the negotiations between Iran and six world powers, including the United States.
The official says the deal includes an agreement that Iran will halt progress on its nuclear program, including a plutonium reactor at the Arak facility. The deal also calls on Iran to neutralize its 20 percent enriched uranium stockpiles.
Tehran has also agreed to intrusive inspections under the terms of the deal.
The official was not authorized to discuss the terms of the agreement by name and insisted on anonymity.
Secretary of State John Kerry tweeted from Geneva: 'Agreement in Geneva: first step makes world safer. More work now'
