GENEVA (AP) — Iran is promising it will make a proposal to break the deadlock over its nuclear program when it resumes talks with the U.S. and five major world powers tomorrow.
The U.S. and its partners are approaching the talks in Geneva cautiously. They are eager to test Tehran's new style since the June election of President Hassan Rouhani (hah-SAHN' roh-HAH'-nee) but insist that it will take more than words to advance the negotiations and end crippling international sanctions.
Iran has long insisted it does not want nuclear weapons and that its nuclear program is entirely peaceful. That position has been viewed with skepticism in Western capitals. But Iranian officials from Rouhani down say their country is ready to meet some international demands to reduce its nuclear activities and build trust.
No final deal is expected at the two-day session.
