U.S. And Iran Meet To Discuss A Nuclear Deal One Month Before The Deadline

VOA: US, Iran Meet One Month Before Nuclear Deal Deadline

The top U.S. and Iranian diplomats are meeting in Switzerland in an attempt to hammer out a historic nuclear deal that could give international inspectors access to Iran's military sites and scientists.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif Saturday in a bid to overcome the remaining obstacles to a final nuclear agreement, a month ahead of a June 30 deadline for a deal between Tehran and world powers.

The meeting in Geneva is the first substantive talks since Iran and the six world powers – Britain, France, the United States, Russia, China and Germany – struck an interim deal April 2. Negotiators have been working on the details of a final agreement to scale back Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

WNU Editor: If this is the position that Iran is going to hold (and Iran is very adamant that they are not going to compromise) .... Iran rejects military site inspections in nuclear deal (Al Jazeera) .... these talks are doomed. My prediction .... expect an extension to the the talks beyond the June 30 deadline.

You're right, of course there will be an extension, for this Administration having ongoing talks is as politically important as a having an agreement.
