Secret negotiations underway with Iran for nuclear deal, former CIA spy says

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (ANS) -- Reza Khalili, the former member of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard, who later became a CIA spy and escaped to the West, says secret negotiations are continuing between the U.S. and Iran that may result in a nuclear deal before the U.S. elections.
Khalili became a Christian in the U.S. after a friend gave him a copy of the JESUS Film and the New Testament.
The deal on the table is this: If Iran agrees to a temporary halt to their uranium enrichment program before the elections, then some of the sanctions on the Iranian central bank and oil industry will be removed, and there will be greater collaboration with the Obama administration after November 6th, Khalili says.
Khalili continues to cultivate high-level contacts within Iran, but won’t divulge his source. “I can’t reveal his place in the government, but he’s very high up, trustworthy, and has direct knowledge of the negotiations,” he notes.
The American and Iranian delegations met in Doha, Qatar October 1st, according to Khalili’s source. “The Iranian side was headed by Ali Akbar Velayati, the former Iranian foreign minister and a close adviser to the supreme leader Khamenei. Velayati is currently being sought by Argentina’s authorities for the Jewish community center bombing in Buenos Aires that killed 85 innocents in 1994.
“The American team was led by a woman, a representative of the Obama administration, who has been involved with the Democratic Party for a long time,” Khalili says. “She has met many times with Velayati. They know each other and trust each other.”
