Iranian nuclear: a possible consensus but "out of date" in Lausanne

Only optimism appears to have expired in the negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program.

Two days after the deadline to reach an agreement in principle on the subject, the diplomatic dance and exchange of accusations about the impasse in discussions, continues in Lausanne, Switzerland.

If the German diplomacy asserts that the final decision is now in the hands of Tehran, the Iranian diplomat responsible does not hesitate to point blame to his interlocutors:

"If they come to a consensus on the basis of the agreement today, then we will publish a joint statement later today, and only then will we be able to start writing the final agreement," said Mohamad Javad Zarif.

The diplomatic dance continues however in Lausanne, with the American John Kerry and the German Frank Walter Steinmeier to affirm that will continue in the city until at least the end of the day today.

The responsible diplomatic French, Laurent Fabius, returned this evening to the negotiations to assert that the hardest part is the conclusion of an agreement.
