Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is now engaged in negotiations with Secretary of State John Kerry over Iran’s nuclear program. The meeting is between Iran and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany. Iran has gone into negotiations by openly criticizing the U.N. nuclear watchdog. Zarif has claimed that the I.A.E.A. relied on “forged, fabricated and false information”. Iran has also refused to give up enriching uranium, which it claims is for peaceful nuclear power.
While any agreement is still a long way off, new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s more moderate stance has given westerners some hope that Iran may compromise.
