Trusting this white house administration on any deal is a bad idea; just think about Obamacare.

International negotiators on Thursday unveiled the framework for a deal that aims to curb Iran’s nuclear program. Here’s a look at some of the key points, according to a fact sheet released by international negotiators in Switzerland:

• Iran would go from having 19,000 centrifuges installed today to about 6,100 under the agreement, a reduction of approximately two-thirds, with 5,060 of those enriching uranium for 10 years.

• Iran agreed to convert its facility at Fordo so that it is no longer used to enrich uranium, or used for the research and development associated with uranium, for at least 15 years. Almost two-thirds of Fordo’s centrifuges and infrastructure would be removed, and all remaining centrifuges and related infrastructure would be monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The facility, which would also not have any fissile material for that period, would be used “for peaceful purposes only,” including nuclear, physics and technology research.

• Iran would enrich uranium only at the Natanz facility for 10 years.

• Iran agreed to not build any facilities that aim to enrich uranium for 15 years.

• The “breakout” timeline for Iran to acquire enough fissile material for one nuclear weapon — currently assessed to be two to three months — would be extended to at least a year, for a duration of 10 years.
