LAUSSANE, Switzerland—The Obama administration is giving in to Iranian demands about the scope of its nuclear program as negotiators work to finalize a tentative framework agreement in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the administration’s evolving position in the negotiations.
JERUSALEM/PARIS (Reuters) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has begun to signal that Israel could resign itself to an Iranian nuclear deal that would leave its enemy with some uranium enrichment capability, a compromise he has long opposed.
DUBAI (Reuters) – Any deal over Iran’s nuclear program must involve the immediate lifting of all sanctions, Iran’s foreign minister said on Wednesday, showing no sign of compromise on a major hurdle in world power negotiations.
The March 24 deadline set by negotiators working on an Iranian nuclear agreement has arrived, and no “political framework agreement“ has yet been reached.
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) – The United States and Iran inched closer to a political deal that would set the stage for a landmark nuclear agreement but differences between Tehran and six major powers remain vast with no sign of an imminent breakthrough, officials said on Monday
You’re a member of Congress. You’re angry because President Obama has cut you out of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. Like the overwhelming majority of Americans, you believe any deal this White House and this president strikes with Tehran won’t prevent the Islamic theocracy from obtaining a nuclear bomb.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States on Tuesday placed sanctions on eight Ukrainian separatists and a Russian bank, warning that recent attacks by rebels armed by Russia violated a European-brokered ceasefire in the war-torn country.
The emerging nuclear deal with Iran is indefensible. The White House knows it. That is why President Obama does not want to subject an agreement to congressional approval, why critics of the deal are dismissed as warmongers, and why the president, his secretary of state, and his national security adviser have spent several weeks demonizing the prime minister of Israel for having the temerity to accept an invitation by the U.S. Congress to deliver a speech on a subject of existential import for his small country. These tactics distract public attention. They turn a subject of enormous significance to American foreign policy into a petty personal drama. They prevent us from discussing what America is about to give away.
Secretary of State John Kerry admitted before Congress on Wednesday that the United States is aware of a secret Iranian facility that an Iranian opposition group identified this week as being part of an undisclosed parallel nuclear program.
An Iranian dissident group known for exposing key aspects of Iran’s secret nuclear work now claims it has new evidence of “an active and secret parallel nuclear program” operated by Tehran.
