Unresolved Iran Nuclear Talks
Talks are a charade.
by Stephen Lendman
Multiple rounds have been held. Istanbul technical talks just concluded.
Breakthroughs haven't happened. How can they when Washington blocks them.
Nuclear talks are a subterfuge. Washington, European nations and Israel know Iran's program is peaceful and legitimate.

The London-based International Group of P&I (property and indemnity insurance) Clubs covers about 95% of world tankers.
