Keine Ergebnisse bei Atomgesprächen mit dem Iran

Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Wen das überrascht, kennt das iranische Regime nicht. Sie werden ihre Bombe bauen und dann wird es aus Europa heißen, man müsse schon Zugeständnisse machen, schließlich habe der Iran ja die Bombe:

Iran walked back all compromises made in previous talks on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, pocketed compromises made by others and asked for more in its latest proposals, a senior US state department official told reporters on Saturday.

Iran continues to accelerate its nuclear program in pretty provocative ways and China and Russia were taken aback at how far Iran had walked back its proposals in talks in Vienna, the official told reporters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Iran came “with proposals that walked back anything – any of the compromises Iran had floated here in the six rounds of talks, pocket all of the compromises that others, and the US in particular, had made, and then asked for more”, the senior US official said.

The official told reporters he did not know when the next round of talks would resume – other officials had said they would reconvene next week – and stressed the date was less important than Iran’s willingness to negotiate seriously.
