Iran proposes Iraq, China as alternate venues to Turkey for nuclear talks with world powers

With nine days to go, Iran still has not agreed on a location for talks with world powers over its nuclear program, Western officials said Wednesday but suggested Istanbul remained the most likely venue.

Iran’s suggestions of alternative sites raised the possibility of complications to get talks under way as expected on April 13 between Iran and envoys from the five permanent U.N. Security Council members and Germany. It also could bring accusations of stall tactics by Iran’s leaders.

The possibility of other locations also was raised by Mohsen Rezaei, a former Revolutionary Guard commander and now spokesman of Iran’s Expediency Council. On Monday, he suggested Baghdad, Damascus, or Beirut, Lebanon.

His comments reflected frustration with Turkey, a recent ally that has moved to reduce critical oil shipments from Iran and agreed to host a NATO defense shield radar that would send a warning if the Islamic Republic fires missiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder if the Iranian leadership has simply decided that these "talks" have been engineered to fail by the West, and that it is simply not worth their time to go, when a war against it appears to be the favored outcome already chosen by the US and Israel.

And bitch Clinton when describing Iran,is actually describing Israel?
“We expect to see concrete commitments from"Israel"that it will come clean on its nuclear program and live up to its international obligations,” she said.
"We enter into these talks with a sober perspective about" Israel's" intentions. It is incumbent upon"Israel "to demonstrate by its actions that it is a willing partner and to participate in these negotiations with an effort to obtain concrete results."

IOW's! Israel,SIGN UP TO THE FUCKING NPT-IAEA,or disarm your rogue-nuclear STOCKPILE.Then,NPT-IAEA Iran won't need ANY EXCUSE to build nuclear weps,because Israel,will not be the regional EXISTENTIAL THREAT to regional Muslim nations!
