If no-deal, n-talks to resume in 10 days: Iran

Nov 9 2013, 6:38pm CST | by IANS

Tehran, Nov 10 (IANS) Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Saturday that if no deal was reached in the ongoing nuclear talks in Geneva, the talks would resume within 10 days, Xinhua reported.

Tehran, Nov 10 — Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Saturday that if no deal was reached in the ongoing nuclear talks in Geneva, the talks would resume within 10 days, Xinhua reported.

"Working (on an agreement) is difficult and time-taking ... and in case we cannot come to a conclusion today (Saturday), the talks will resume in seven to 10 days," he said.

"We are ready to work together (with the other party) on a proper plan in which the rights of our nation is addressed ... ( but) as we have said earlier we will not allow anybody to develop a plan for us," Zarif said.

Iran and the P5+1 countries -- including Britain, China, France, Russia and the US plus Germany -- began crucial talks on Iran's nuclear issue in Geneva Thursday.

Iran insists on uranium enrichment activities within the country and urges the powers to lift sanctions which have hit its oil industry and financial system.

According to the media, the West is at odds with Iran and calls on the country to halt high-grade uranium enrichment, to ship out or oxidise the stockpile of its 20-percent enriched uranium and to stop working on its heavy water project.

Earlier, Zarif had pointed out the existing differences among the world powers over a deal on Iran's nuclear issue in the ongoing talks.

"It is unclear whether we will reach an agreement on a draft of the joint statement," said Zarif. "There are agreements on some of the topics and differences on others."

Also, "there are different views (over some aspects of the agreement) among the P5+1 countries," reported Xinhua citing him without elaboration.

"We need our concerns to be addressed in the agreement as well," and it needs time to work on the final draft, said Zarif, adding that therefore, if the draft is not concluded, talks could continue in the coming days.

State Department rejects real refugees

Jul 25 2014 5:51pm CDT | Source: WND

The smell of rank hypocrisy and naked cruelty fills the air at the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. President Obama and his Cabinet are scrambling to find billions in additional funding to accommodate the 60,000 illegal-alien minors who have crossed our southwest border since January. Those minors are being classified erroneously as “refugees” to make their entry into the country appear lawful. Meanwhile, 2,400 real refugees from violence in Iran and ...

The Strangest Disaster on the Planet Right Now

Jul 17 2014 9:05am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Who even knows what to call it? The Iraq War or the Iraq-Syrian War would be far too orderly for what's happening, so it remains a no-name conflict that couldn't be deadlier or more destabilizing -- and it's in the process of internationalizing in unsettling ways. Think of it as the strangest disaster on the planet right now. After all, when was the last time that the U.S. and Russia ended up on the same sid ...
