The Iranian news agency ISNA reported that at today’s meeting, the six powers presented a “detailed” proposal to Iran, but apparently the Iranian side viewed it as “not balanced.” Then Iran presented its own “comprehensive” proposal containing five points that included “a range of nuclear and non-nuclear issues.” The two sides will resume their talks on Thursday.
UPDATE: "I believe we have the beginning of a negotiation," said a senior U.S. official of the talks. "We have got engaged ... we have had detailed discussions," the official said [Reuters, 23 May].

Sounds all reasonable.
But Iran must not trust, it must receive first and then give.
