Long and Intensive Discussions – But No Deal
Almaty talks ended today after what was described as “long and intensive discussions,” but the positions of Iran and P5+1 still remained too far apart to strike a deal. The date and location of next round of talks is being worked out.
EU foreign policy chief summed up the seriousness of the talks by telling reporters that the two sides had never engaged in back and forth discussions as intensely as was the case today in Almaty.
