The Wording of the Iranian Nuclear Talks Changes

Iranian nuclear talks… A hot topic of discussion for already several months and whenever it seems that these discussions would be transformed into the ones about the already signed deal, the sides declare about a delay. The deadline for signing a document has already been prolonged twice. The next one is July 13.

It would seem that as the negotiations continue the trust between the sides would strengthen more and more. However, here we observe just the opposite, at least this is what can be said from the wording of the negotiating sides – Iran and world six powers.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared that Iran "needs to plan to fight the US regardless of whether there is an agreement," The Jerusalem Post reports. In his turn the Secretary of State John Kerry, talking about the progress of the talks, said: "If the tough decisions don't get made, we are absolutely prepared to call an end to this process," cbsnews.com reports. However, he also added that he is hopeful that there will be a deal.

All these developments over the Iranian nuclear deal are being very carefully followed by Israel, which does not miss any opportunity to make a comment. This time Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to Khamenei’s call to the Iranians, claiming that this is happening as "march of concessions to Iran continues in Vienna, concessions even on issues that had been marked as red lines in the Lausanne package, which is a bad deal in its own right," The Jerusalem Post reports.

It is really difficult to say whether the sides have crossed their red lines or not, but as there are certain difficulties in the talks, this means that there are issues the sides are not ready to compromise. Tomorrow is another deadline for a final deal, but taking into consideration the current pace of the talks, one should not be too optimistic...
