After previous IAEA visits to Iran ended with public statements by the international body praising Iran for its ahead-of-schedule implementation of the P5+1 interim deal terms, the hopes were that today’s visit would add to the momentum behind negotiation on a final pact.
That didn’t happen, however, as today’s talks came and went with no statements from either side, and the IAEA provided no indication if they intend to make any statements in the future.
The absence of any statement leaves the situation open to interpretation, with hawks likely to present it as proof Iran isn’t cooperating, despite a lack of any direct evidence to that effect, while Iran is likely to play it up as evidence that the IAEA just didn’t have any new questions for them.
The conspicuous silence out of the IAEA facilitates this sort of speculation at potentially the worst possible time, as negotiations between the P5+1 and Iran on the terms of the final deal have now begun, and the interim deal has just two months left.

If no one walked out, and they are still talking, there is hope. Premature discussion of progress in the talks has only served to supply those who want the talks to fail with new talking points, and reasons for additional demands.
I imagine the Israelis are burning up the airwaves trying to get details from their tools in the USG. Not that they wouldn't try and twist anything positive into a negative.
How can anyone believe the US and NATO-chief AFR claim that the new US missiles in Romania, Poland and on 32 ships in the Mediterranean Sea are to defend us from something Iran doesn't have and according to the CIA (and Mossad) Iran isn't working to get an A.bomb. The Emperor is naked ! Missile engineer Bob Aldridge -www.plrc.org-"Whether they are on ships or land, they are still a necessary component for an unanswerable first strike."
Iran deal or Iran talks seams to look more like Israel Palestinians "peace" talks, one day Johan Kerry calls Israel a apartheid regime, next day USG apologies and giving millions of dollars of free stuff to Israel making sure that the beast is not angry at them, later they report that Israel is worse then any other government spying on Americans! One day IAEA announces a very good day talking to Iran, next day there is objection by one of those 5+1. Question is if Rohani is not trust worthy or is it the 5+1 playing the game taking their time to see what develops in Libya or Ukraine or Syria and see if they need the Iranian natural resources or not. After all, USG and EU desperately looking for ways, any ways, right or wrong, deceptive or fraudulent to restore their economic power by being in control of world natural resources as once they were in control.
