With an extension of nuclear the interim nuclear agreement now a near-certainty, in spite of massive gaps that still exist between the US and Iranian positions, there has apparently been a new outpouring of analyses of what a final agreement must look like in order to defend Western interests.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that Iran may have finally begun the process of converting its low-grade enriched uranium in compliance with the terms of the interim nuclear deal signed in November. These reports come only days before the deadline for either the completion of a final agreement or the extension of talks between Iran and the P5+1. Any such extension would depend upon agreement that there is serious commitment to the process on all sides, and this agreement would certainly depend upon Iran being perceived as being in full or nearly full compliance with the agreement it signed eight months ago.

VIENNA (AP) — Joint efforts by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and three other Western foreign ministers failed Sunday to advance faltering nuclear talks with Iran, with the target date for a deal only a week away.

INU- Iranian state media quoted a senior official on Thursday as threatening that Iran would immediately resume its previous activities if the P5+1 does not accept a deal reflecting Iranian demands on enrichment capacity. According to Tasnim News Agency, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the chairman of the Majlis’ National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, declared that among other ostensibly suspended activities, Iran would return to 20 percent uranium enrichment if the United States did not accept Tehran’s plans to increase is current supply of operational centrifuges by approximately 19 times.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than three-quarters of the U.S. House of Representatives signed a letter sent to President Barack Obama Wednesday، insisting that lawmakers play a role in any decision to offer Iran long-term sanctions relief in connection with negotiations on Tehran`s nuclear program.

INU- It was announced on Tuesday that US Secretary of State John Kerry and foreign ministers from other P5+1 countries may soon travel to Vienna to directly participate in nuclear talks between those nations and Iran. Diplomats who have spoken to the media on this topic have made a point of saying that the move does not mean that a deal is at hand. Indeed, with less than two weeks to go before the July 20 deadline that has been set for an agreement, the prospect of a deal looks as distant as ever. The arrival of foreign ministers may signify a final strategy aimed at pushing for meaningful compromise, or it may be a necessary first step in working out the details of an extension of the talks.
