CNN BREAKING NEWS ALERT: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif insisted Wednesday that the Obama administration mischaracterizes Iran's concessions in the nuclear deal, telling CNN's Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto in an exclusive interview that "we did not agree to dismantle anything." As part of the deal, Iran was required to dilute its stockpile of uranium that had been enriched to 20%, well above the 5% level needed for power generation but still below the level for developing a nuclear weapon. In addition, the deal mandated that Iran halt all enrichment above 5% and "dismantle the technical connections required to enrich above 5%," according to a White House fact sheet issued in November after the initial agreement was reached. Zarif accused the Obama administration of creating a false impression with such language.
