Obama: chances of reaching Iran deal less than 50%

PNN/Bethlehem/

United States President Barack Obama has said that he believes the chances of reaching a nuclear deal between Iran and major powers to be less than 50%.

This is what Senator Dick Durbin told Politico news site last night, indicating that Obama will not agree to a deal he believes to be weak and unenforceable.

Obama last night released the latest developments of the nuclear talks in Vienna during a televised round-table meeting with the US delegation including US Foreign Minister John Kerry.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the nuclear negotiations between his country and the 6 major powers were at a delicate stage, pointing out that Iran was making preparations for the period after the negotiations and after the lifting of the sanctions.

President Rouhani’s remarks came before his departure from Tehran last night on his way to Russia to attend a summit with a Shanghai organisation and meet with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

It has been decided that the talks will continue in Vienna today in hopes of a finalized nuclear deal before the expire of the deadline this Tuesday.
