US less optimistic over reaching Iran nuclear deal
US optimism that a deal to restore the 2015 agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear developed has soured, with the State Department warning Tuesday it was headed toward “Plan B” if Tehran doesn’t budge.
“I want to be clear that an agreement is neither imminent nor is it certain,” Price said Monday.
And on Tuesday, while refusing to say the talks had reached an impasse, Price said the United States had contingency plans if a deal could not be reached and Iran’s alleged plans to develop nuclear weapons were not halted.
“The onus is on Tehran to make decisions that it might consider difficult,” Price told reporters.
