Blinken, poche settimane per salvare l’accordo nucleare iraniano – Nord America

There are only “a few weeks” left to salvage the nuclear deal with Iran and the United States is ready to consider “other options” if negotiations fail. This is what US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said in an interview with National Public Radio (NPR).
“We have very little time because Tehran is getting closer and closer to the point where it can quickly produce enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon,” said Foggy Bottom, owner of Foggy Bottom. It is getting harder to fall back because they are learning and doing new things because of overcoming the limitations set out in the agreement.”
After months of stalled talks in Vienna, Washington recently announced modest but still insufficient progress. For Blinken, restoring the agreement “would be the best outcome for American security, but if we can’t, we are looking at other options” with allies in Europe and the Middle East as well. He said options that have been “the subject of extensive work in recent weeks and months,” noting that we are “prepared for both tracks.”
Hours earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced that there was “real progress” in negotiations over the Iran nuclear program deal and that Moscow hoped to “reach an agreement,” according to Interfax.
“Regarding the Iranian nuclear program, I will now take a more optimistic position. There is real progress there, and there is a real will, first of all between Iran and the United States, to understand the concrete concerns and understand how those concerns could be,” Lavrov said.
