An agreement to agree

There's been a lot of confusion about the P5+1 Framework coming out of the Lausanne, Switzerland negotiations. The Silver-Spooned Surfer says one thing and WaPo says another - how can that be? Well, it's a very complex negotiation with "details" yet to be worked out but luckily I've found a slide from John Kerry's PowerPoint deck that clears things up (a bit) and should put everyone's mind at ease. Here you see the big picture - the Framework is designed to achieve a specific outcome ($) and now all they have to do is work out the details.  Hope this helps.

Coexist - we can make more money that way

You're welcome.

You might also want to thank Mohammad Javad Zarif for his leadership - I expect he will be handsomely rewarded in years to come.
Esfandyar Batmanghelidj, who is organising an event in Geneva in September to bring Iranian and foreign investors together to study business opportunities in post-sanctions Iran, also welcomed the news.
“Rouhani’s political legitimacy and the legitimacy of the deal will depend on a promise of economic growth and relief for the average Iranian,” he told the Guardian. “Oil prices will remain low, so growth will require increased foreign direct investment that can help create jobs and boost consumer spending.”
Batmanghelidj said the nuclear deal would allow a new phase of business development work to begin in earnest. “The most important thing for Iranian businesses is new and more transparent corporate communications that can support relationship building with multinational firms in a way that builds public trust,” he said.
