Report: UN Nuclear Agency, Iran, May Meet in August
Jerusalem Post – The UN atomic agency and Iran may hold a new round of nuclear talks in August, diplomats said on Monday, in what would be their first meeting since last month’s election of a relative moderate as the Islamic state’s president. If it does take place, the meeting will be scrutinized by the West for any sign of increased Iranian readiness to compromise in the decade-old international dispute over its nuclear program after the June 14 election of Hassan Rouhani.
A diplomat in Vienna, where the International Atomic Energy Agency is based, said he believed the aim was for an IAEA-Iran meeting in mid-August but that no decision had yet been taken. “I think that no meeting in August would be a bad sign,” another Western envoy said.
