A six-minute analysis of the latest developments in the nuclear talks between Iran and the 5+1 Powers, noting signals of Tehran’s frustration with the US….
“Why is the Supreme Leader’s office lashing out at the US nuclear negotiator as dishonest?”
“Someone in Iran has gotten wobbly about the talks. Why?”
1. Unnamed “Western diplomats” have been telling a favored journalist that reports of a positive offer by Iran at the Geneva talks two weeks ago are exaggerated.
2. The Supreme Leader does not trust the Americans.
“Put those two points together. You have a potent combination which will not advance the talks, but could scupper them.”
