The talks between Iran and the P5+1 aiming at a final nuclear settlement are scheduled to begin Tuesday, and it wouldn’t be talks with Iran if the US wasn’t loudly pessimistic about the process.
US officials termed the talks extremely difficult and potentially impossible, coupling a warning that the talks won’t be settled quickly with a bizarre admonishment to Iran to get the deal done quickly.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to chime in too, reiterating his opposition to the talks in general and to any deal that ends international hostility toward Iran.
