Two days left… for reaching a preliminary agreement..
The Iranians are probably just making a mockery out of Kerry & Obama’s efforts…. dragging feet.. and not following the terms afterwards..
But let’s see…
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Iran may accept new constraints on uranium enrichment but is pushing back about the length of limits on technology it could use to make nuclear arms, Western officials told The Associated Press on Sunday.
Tuesday is the target date in the nuclear talks for a preliminary agreement that would set the stage for a further round of negotiations toward a comprehensive deal by June 30. The goal is a long-term curb on Iran’s nuclear activities, with Tehran gaining relief from the burden of economic penalties imposed by the West.
Foreign ministers and other representatives from Iran and the six powers in the talks have said the negotiations have a chance of succeeding by Tuesday.
The two Western officials who outlined the state of the talks spoke on condition of anonymity because the officials were not authorized to discuss them publicly.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said U.S. negotiators were aiming for a strong deal. By accepting constraints on their atomic activities, the Iranians would "live up to their rhetoric that they are not trying to acquire a nuclear weapon," he said in Washington on ABC’s "This Week."
