Washington Hopes to Resume Nuclear Negotiations With Tehran

Washington still hopes to resume talks with Iran over its nuclear program next week, despite the controversy over the venue, as reported by the U.S. State Department on Thursday.

The U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a week ago that negotiations between the Group 5 +1 (United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany) with Iran will be held on 13 and 14 April in Istanbul. But Russia and the European Union announced after that date and venue of the negotiations did not announce yet. Iranian officials said Tehran would prefer to hold in Iraq, not in Turkey, citing the shift in the position of the Turkish crisis in Syria.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Thursday: “We still believe that it will be held in next week. But should act in a hurry” to finish the final details. “We believe it will be held in Istanbul. We do not choose a place instead of somewhere else, but it is important to define it accurately.”

Clinton warned that the deadline diplomacy is not open, and that “all options remain on the table” if Iran refused to negotiate on its program, which raises the concern of the Lord. Clinton emphasized that the United States would continue to “put pressure” on Iran.

Recent talks between Iran and the 5 +1 group in Istanbul failed in last year.
