Iranian Nuclear Talks

by Stephen Lendman

Washington obstructs peaceful resolution.

On April 5, so-called P5+1 talks began. They picked up where previous ones left off. Countries involved include America, Britain, China, Russia, France and Germany. Almaty, Kazahhstan played host. It did so for the second time.

Iran participates in good faith. Saeed Jalili heads its negotiating delegation. EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton represents P5+1 countries.

Fars News Agency said:

"This morning, (Jalili) presented the opposite side with Iran's specific proposals for the start of a new round of cooperation between the P5+1 and Iran."

His deputy, Ali Baqeri said "proposals have been regulated within the framework of Iran's overall plan presented in Moscow."

"Iran believes that what is referred to as confidence building measure, which includes a set of actions that need to be agreed upon and brought into action by both sides, is part of a comprehensive solution and not an insignificant part of the solution or something alongside it."

"On the very same basis, the proposal that Jalili offered to the representatives of the G5+1 countries this morning presented a specific framework to the opposite side."

Multiple previous rounds failed. It's no surprise. Washington bears full responsibility. So does Israel covertly.

This time's no different. Day one ended inconclusively. Reports said common ground ran afoul straightaway.

An unnamed Western diplomat said Iran's response to P5+1 demands fell short. It amounted to "reworking" proposals made last year.

Both sides remained a "long way apart on substance." State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said no progress was made. Washington won't meet Iran bilaterally.

Ashton spokesman Michael Man added:
