US floating possibility of open-ended Iran nuclear talks

(Worthy News) - After missing a second deadline in a week on Tuesday for concluding the nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers, the US administration has begun to suggest the talks could continue without set timetables, the Times of Israel reported.

American officials insisted this week that the sides "have never been closer" to sealing up a deal that would scale back Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for relief from crippling international sanctions.

But that optimism hasn't translated into agreement on key issues, including international inspections of Iranian military sites, the exact timeframe for sanctions relief after a deal is completed, and more. [ Source ]

  1. Back in March 23, 2005, Iran offered to cap its centrifuges at 3,000 (at a time when it still had far fewer than that). The West said no because then, its redline was zero centrifuges.

    Tehran has since gone from hundreds or fewer centrifuges in the early to mid-2000s to 1,000 in 2007 to 19,000 now (10,000 of which are operating), plus 1,000 advanced (non-operating) centrifuges. It has gone from no significant volumes of enriched uranium, low-grade or otherwise, prior to 2010 to thousands of kilograms of enriched uranium.

    During this time, which included several rounds of failed negotiations – in August 2005, March and August 2006, July 2008, October 2009, July 2012 and April 2013 – the West’s redlines evaporated.
