Vienna: both sides agree to extend talks

It looks like the extension will run a maximum of four months, which avoids having to deal with a new and potentially even more hostile Congress but obviously keeps the pressure on to get a deal done. Al-Monitor is reporting that the extension deal requires Iran to convert all its remaining stockpiles of 20% enriched uranium to fuel for the Tehran research reactor, which would make it difficult to reprocess into weapons-grade material. The P5+1 agreed to free up an additional $2.8 billion in frozen funds for access by Iran (expect howls of indignation from the Bomb Bomb Iran caucus in 3…2…). The rest of the terms of November’s Joint Plan of Action will remain in effect.
