High Hopes at Start of Iran Nuclear Meeting in Geneva
Ynet – Don’t expect a breakthrough – but the chances for progress have seldom been better. This is the message coming from Iran and six world powers ahead of renewed talks this week meant to end a decade of deadlock on Tehran’s nuclear program.
The two sides come to the negotiating table in Geneva on Tuesday and Wednesday amid a feel-good atmosphere that began with the June election of centrist Iranian President Hassan Rohani. Subsequent conciliatory comments by Iranian officials were capped last month by a phone call between Rohani and President Barack Obama – the first conversation between U.S. and Iranian leaders in more than three decades.
