According to the deal, centrifuges can be used to enrich uranium to levels ranging from uses in energy, medicine and science to weapons-grade used in nuclear warheads. Iran says it is enriching only for peaceful purposes and now has nearly 20,000 of the machines set up at Natanz, its main site, with almost 10,000 enriching. (Source: AP)

Centrifuges will still run at Fordo — one Western official told The Associated Press that almost 1,000 of the machines will be spinning. But they will not enrich uranium. Instead, the official said, they will produce isotopes for medical, industrial and research uses. (Source: AP)

"This framework would cut off every pathway that Iran could take to develop a nuclear weapon. This deal is not based on trust. It's based on unprecedented verification," President Obama said in his address. (Source: AP)

Preliminary agreement commits Iran to redesign its nearly-built reactor at Arak from a facility that would spew out enough plutonium to arm several nuclear weapons a year to a type that will not produce such material. It also agrees to ship all spent fuel — which contains some fissile material — for the reactor's lifetime. (Source: AP)

Iran Foreign Minister Zarif said the agreement would show "our program is exclusively peaceful, has always been and always will remain exclusively peaceful." But he also said it would not hinder the country's pursuit of atomic energy for civilian purposes. "We will continue enriching," he said. "We will continue research and development." He said the heavy water reactor would be "modernized." (Source: AP)
