    Iran says ready for nuclear talks with world powers

    Iran says ready for nuclear talks with world powers - Yahoo! News

    TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran has prepared an "updated nuclear proposal" and is ready to talk to world powers, state television quoted the Islamic Republic's chief nuclear negotiator as saying on Tuesday.

    The announcement was made a day before six world powers were expected to hold high-level talks in Germany on what to do about Iran's contentious nuclear program. The West suspects the Islamic state is seeking to build bombs. Iran denies the charge.

    "Iran has prepared an updated nuclear proposal and is ready to resume negotiations with world powers," al-Alam, Iran's Arabic-language satellite channel, quoted chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili as saying.

    The official IRNA news agency quoted him as saying Iran was ready to use its "capacities to remove common concerns on the international scene."

    Such language may cause suspicion in Western capitals that Iran's proposal, like others before, fails to specifically address their concerns about its nuclear ambitions and is a ruse to buy time and avert the threat of more punitive measures.

    A senior U.S. official was dismissive of the remarks attributed to Jalili, a leading nuclear hard-liner, saying there was "not a hint of substance" in them.

    The official told Reuters he believed the comments were "timed to split the P-5 (powers) by giving China and Russia reason to break ranks on Iran sanctions."

    I find that Iran uses this ploy regularly. China and Russia will hopefully stay in the loop and hard on Iran. Thoughts?

    Well first, I am of the opinion that the nuclear cat was out of the bag years ago. Any country that wants the bomb will eventually get it.

    Back on the topic: Talking is a tool that rarely hurts anyone, and we can talk and chew gum at the same time.

    With this administration, that remains to be seen.

    My fear is that if Iran doesn't make it real plain, real soon that they will give up Uranium enrichment, Israel will make these talks academic…. real soon.

    You can press a red button while chewing gum too.

    Sorry but imo talks in Iran's case is nothing but stall time. They are not interested in talks...just the time that talks buy them. They've proven that to me just by reading recent history.
