Iran Talks May Be Going Somewhere
We’re still waiting to hear what’s happening in Vienna, where Iran is negotiating with the international community over whether to allow 75 percent of its uranium to be sent out of the country to be reprocessed into fuel rods, a move that would significantly reduce Iran’s ability to construct a nuclear weapon. There’s been some bluster, but so far things appear to be going kind of well, according to Mohamed ElBaradei, the outgoing chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
“We had this afternoon quite a constructive meeting. We’re off to a good start. Most of the technical issues have been discussed,” he said after the meeting at the IAEA headquarters.
He said talks would resume on Tuesday morning.
The head of the Iranian delegation, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, said he endorsed Mr ElBaradei’s comments.
