Insider news & Analysis in Iran

VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran and the U.N. nuclear agency have made progress in talks on the country's disputed nuclear program but there are still many outstanding issues, the watchdog's chief inspector said on Monday.

The Iranian regime said Sunday it has not granted the UN atomic watchdog access to the Parchin military site, where experiments relating to nuclear weapons development have occurred.
"Visiting Parchin is not included in the seven steps," the spokesman for the Iranian regime's atomic energy organisation, Behrouz Kamalvandi, told the state-run ISNA news agency, referring to elements of an agreement reached Sunday. As an Iranian-American I am part of a community that has ties to a rich cultural and historical tapestry, to the often-beautiful Iranian landscape, and to its people, many of whom are close relatives. Like most of my fellow Americans, I believe that a military confrontation is unwise, and the consequences would be devastating for me both in here in the United States as well as in Iran.

Former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean spoke out against the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations with Iran at a Capitol Hill briefing hosted by a controversial Iranian dissident group on Wednesday.

President Barack Obama considers himself like the good guy in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. He captures the bad guy, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and they cut a nuclear deal; but before they split the loot -- Nobel Prizes -- the "Ugly," Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, kills the deal, dashing for the bomb -- breakout. Fanciful? Hardly!

Rouhani said that there would be no destruction of existing centrifuges “under any circumstances.” It seems he is going even going further than what his foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, told CNN’s Jim Sciutto this week. What's going on here? Because there could be, potentially, some sort of fundamental disagreement between Iran and the United States.
