VIENNA — The Iran nuclear talks shifted Friday to a blame game, as Iran’s foreign minister accused the United States of shifting its demands and dismissed a warning that the U.S. was ready to quit the negotiations.

Hours after his comments, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met again with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for another attempt at resolving the differences standing in the way a landmark deal that offers Iran sanctions relief in exchange for long-term, verifiable curbs on nuclear programs that Tehran could use to make weapons.

Afterward, Kerry spoke of progress, while acknowledging a “couple of very difficult issues” still blocking a deal. And despite the sharp public comments by both sides, he said the negotiating atmosphere was “very constructive.”

    I’ve seen more forward movement when I was assigned to personally view the activities of the Cicada during its 18year dormant cycle….. Can you imagine how bad it is if John ” Reminiscent of Genghis Kahn” Kerry thinks it’s no good!!! Just imagine what this debacle of a Treaty must already contain!!!
