On November 24, 2014, the group known as P5 + 1 (United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, France and Germany), in charge of the negotiations over Iran's nuclear program, decided to give an extension of seven months to Iran nuclear talks. In addition, Iran will continue to have access to $700 million per month from oil-export revenue held in account frozen by U.S. sanctions.
The U.S. will continue to suspend sanctions on Iran's auto and petrochemicals exports, while retaining the congressional sanctions that have severed Iran's access to banking and cut its oil exports in half.
Recent declarations by Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khomeini and the red tape that characterized the negotiations indicate that Iran has no intentions of putting a halt to the advancement of its nuclear program.
