Moscow negotiations: the Iran nuclear situation is in a stalemate.

Mindful of a possible Israel strike to its nuclear facilities, both Iran and its negotiating partners are trying to pursue even a minimal level of contact to shore up the process despite the failure of the negotiations in Moscow on Monday and Tuesday. The possibility of arriving to an agreement is remote and the situation does not look good, right now. The Moscow meeting between the five UN Security Council members and Germany with Iran was the third in a series of inconclusive negotiations that began in Istanbul in April and continued in Baghdad in May. Another round of high-level talks anytime soon is currently in doubt.
