Mr Biden made his offer of direct talks during a security conference in Germany last weekend.

He said Washington was prepared to hold one-to-one talks with Iran "when the Iranian leadership, supreme leader, is serious".

"That offer stands, but it must be real and tangible and there has to be an agenda that they are prepared to speak to. We are not just prepared to do it for the exercise," he said.

Khamenei is serious, the 5+1+Israel have got themselves in a corner, nothing else will suffice other than Iran stopping all nuclear enrichment and research.

The problem is, they have consistently failed to provide evidence that Iran is doing anything other than what it is perfectly entitled to do, as a signed up member of the NPT.

The 5+1+Israel have nothing concrete to nail Iran with. It is all supposition. Iran is being crippled by sanctions that themselves are probably illegal, and basically a war without bombs.
The sanctions will do nothing to alter the resolve of the Ayatollah, they will turn the Iranian public into unity behind him.
As just about the most threatened country in the world, I maintain, while that threat continues, Iran would be stupid not to obtain nuclear weapons.
Even without the threats, considering nuclear armed Israel, there is no Arab country with the ability to counter its nuclear arsenal, so long as that remains the case the region is out af balance.

There are two ways to bring balance, neither would be acceptable.

The British top diplomat repeated the old famous rhetoric that “Iran continues to enrich uranium in contravention of UN Security Council resolutions and on a scale that has no plausible civilian explanation”.

But, he refused to acknowledge Iran’s inalienable right to enrichment cycle as a full and committed member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Hague accused the Islamic Republic of commissioning a nuclear program, which is not civilian, but he gave no reason for his accusations without referring to the fact that the IAEA inspectors have been monitoring Iran’s nuclear activities round the clock since 10 years ago and they did not find even one example of diversion of activities.

Hague was a precocious kid, they make poor adults!
