Iran n-talks end sans breakthrough

Feb 27 2013, 4:26pm CST | by

Almaty (Kazakhstan), Feb 28 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Talks between Iran and six world powers being conducted over the former's disputed nuclear programme concluded here Wednesday without reaching any agreement. But the two sides pledged to hold further meetings in the coming weeks.

Almaty (Kazakhstan), Feb 28 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Talks between Iran and six world powers being conducted over the former's disputed nuclear programme concluded here Wednesday without reaching any agreement. But the two sides pledged to hold further meetings in the coming weeks.

The six world powers -- Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US -- had proposed scaling back sanctions against Iran in exchange for the closure of its underground Fordo enrichment facility and an undertaking to halt the enrichment of uranium to 20 percent.

A level of enrichment greater than 20 percent is the very minimum needed to make a crude nuclear device, scientists say, although most nuclear bombs use the heavy metal enriched to 90 percent.

Western powers believe Iran is attempting to build an atomic weapon. Tehran insists its programme has entirely peaceful objective and decried international pressure as unacceptable interference in its sovereign affairs.

Iran's chief negotiator Saeed Jalili said Wednesday the talks had seen a modicum of progress, and proposals by the world powers were "closer to Iran's position".

"Their proposals seem more realistic and positive," he said.

And despite the lack of a breakthrough at the first talks between the sides since last June's meeting in Moscow, Russia's chief negotiator at the two-day talks, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, described the negotiations as "extremely useful".

"A number of aspects to the resolution of the issue and means of increasing trust were considered," he said, without elaborating.

The two sides agreed to meet again at expert level in Istanbul March 17-18 and to hold high-level talks in Kazakhstan April 5-6.

New US Secretary of State, John Kerry, said Monday the opportunity for negotiations could not "remain open forever".

International sanctions against Iran have hit the Islamic republic's economy hard, and seen the near collapse of its national currency, the rial.

ISIS Still Threatens Yazidis On Mount Sinjar

Oct 21 2014 5:48pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

It was the imminent threat of a massacre on Iraq's Sinjar mountain that first drew U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State militant group in August. That threat never went away. On Monday, Islamic State militants returned to attack Sinjar, prompting members of the Yazidi minority living in the area to find refuge up the mountain yet again. Many had never left their homes, even though ISIS fighters continued to surround the mountain. Swedish ...

Obama's Kobani Crossroads

Oct 14 2014 9:38am CDT | Source: Big Government

Obama has consistently disregarded the advice of his military experts on the ISIS threat. And he seems to have written off the Kurdish-Syrian town of Kobani, which may soon be overrun by ISIS. Whatever the U.S. accomplished after about a decade of war in Iraq has, in a matter of months, deteriorated to a situation that may become unprecedented in its instability and threat to Western interests. Obama’s clumsy departure from Iraq, his ...

Iran lays out impossible red lines for nuclear talks

(Algemeiner) Some six weeks before the conclusion of crucial nuclear talks between P5+1 world powers and Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a Twitter feed he is believed to operate, posted a graphic laying out 11 non-negotiable “red lines,” beyond which his country’s negotiators would, presumably, not budge. “During the past year, Ayatollah Khamenei, in line with his support for the Iranian negotiators, has also str ...
