Iran’s nuclear aspirations

With speeches by the Presidents of both the U.S. and Iran in the UN General Assembly behind them, Washington and Tehran are deploying their diplomats to prepare for the next and perhaps most fruitful round of their indirect talks in Vienna. Rousing rhetoric aside, Ebrahim Raisi and his Foreign Minister sounded as if their Supreme Leader directed them to resume the negotiations, though not necessarily to make meaningful concessions in them. For his part, Joe Biden kept a conciliatory tone, while insisting on Iran’s full compliance with commitments undertaken six years ago. In Israel, two distinct views are heard - the more militant by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett; and a moderate one by the Defense and Foreign Ministers, Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid.
