Should we be optimistic about the Iran and P5+1 talks scheduled for February 26? Laicie and I contributed our take on the matter to LobeLog. Here’s an excerpt:
“…what lies behind us is far less important than what lies ahead. The hopeful or ominous developments of the past few months only matter insofar as they signal what negotiators will or won’t be willing to put on the table. To that end, it’s worth speculating not just about what this new centrifuge and that new statement might mean, but also about what compromises could be made to make this round the one that matters.”
