How Do You Say "Dismantle" In Farsi?

I'm not sure. And neither, apparently, are Obama and Kerry:
CNN – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif insisted Wednesday that the Obama administration mischaracterizes concessions by his side in the six-month nuclear deal with Iran, telling CNN in an exclusive interview that “we did not agree to dismantle anything.” 
Zarif told CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto that terminology used by the White House to describe the agreement differed from the text agreed to by Iran and the other countries in the talks — the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany...
Shouldn't the, er, confusion have been hammered out before the sanctions were lifted?

Well yes I suppose. But would make any difference?
