Iranian officials claimed on Tuesday that the  Obama administration concocted a fact sheet on a landmark nuclear agreement that  doesn’t match what they endorsed over the weekend.

Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham  said the version of the pact released by the White House ‘is a one-sided  interpretation of the agreed text in Geneva and some of the explanations and  words in the sheet contradict the text of the Joint Plan of Action.’

At issue are several differences between the  White House’s summary of the accord and the plain text of  the agreement between Iran, the U.S. and five other industrialized nations –  specifically the administration’s claim that Iran has agreed to stop enriching  uranium for the next six months.

On Saturday evening the White House said in a  statement that Western nations and Iran had ‘reached a set of initial  understandings that halts the progress of Iran’s nuclear program and rolls it  back in key respects.’

President Obama delivered an address 17  minutes later, announcing that under the agreement, ‘Iran  cannot use its next-generation centrifuges, which are used for enriching  uranium.’

He also said the Islamic republic ‘will halt  work at its plutonium reactor.’

On Tuesday Iran released what it says is the actual agreement, and  insisted it had made no such commitments.

‘This  agreement that has just been signed mentions that Iran is fully entitled to the  right of enrichment and it will never quit its rights in the future,’ Iranian  Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the following day in  Geneva.

He  said Wednesday that the White House misrepresented the Geneva negotiations.  ‘They released that fact sheet because they wanted to make their desired changes  in it,’ he told Iran’s parliament in a closed briefing.
