It took months of arduous bargaining before Iran and six world powers could agree on a first-step nuclear deal. But the two sides may find the going even tougher Tuesday, when they start to confront hurdles standing in the path of a final accord.
Vast differences between Iran and the six-nation coalition seeking to dismantle the Islamic republic's nuclear program may lead to another short-term deal - and that could renew criticism that Iran is stalling and energize the push in Congress for tougher sanctions even if they endanger negotiations.
For the United States and its negotiating partners, the next round of nuclear talks with Iran could present a difficult decision: to sign another temporary agreement or accept nothing less than an ambitious, multiyear accord to dismantle the Islamic republic's nuclear program.
North Korea has moved a missile to an east coast launch-site likely to test fire it -- allowing the regime in Pyongyang to save face if it is stepping down from its confrontation with the United States.
A perfect storm is motivating Iran’s sudden sprint to nukes. Tehran declared last week that it will now use up to 3,000 IR-2M centrifuges, which can enrich uranium at about quadruple the speed of Iran’s current enrichment rate.
To the uninitiated, Vladimir Putin seemingly has undertaken what President Obama might call a "reset" of the Russian political landscape. In fact, the prime minister's announcement Saturday that he would swap offices next year with the current president, Dmitry Medvedev, just clarifies an abiding reality: There is not, and since at least 2000 never has been, any power center in Moscow other than Mr. Putin, the former KGB operative-turned-authoritarian kleptocrat.
The Obama administration has been secretly working on a review of U.S. nuclear weapons in what officials say is part of the White House effort to make deeper cuts on strategic nuclear forces.
Police on Tuesday confirmed a link between Italian and Greek anarchists, saying the Italian group that sent parcel bombs to three Rome embassies was responding to an appeal from a Greek counterpart to step up attacks.
President Obama's top nuclear envoy warned Arab ambassadors Wednesday that they risk contributing to a failure of Middle East peace talks if they use an upcoming meeting in Vienna to pressure Israel over its nuclear program, diplomats said.
U.S. officials have convinced Israel that Iran needs at least a year to develop a nuclear weapon, dimming prospects of an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, The New York Times reports.
Despite calling for an end to the Cold War mentality, when President Obama sits down with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday it may seem like the Cold War is still raging.
Samore, the former White House arms control coordinator who is now with Harvard's Belfer Center think tank, says the Iranians will insist on keeping all of the 20,000 centrifuges set up at their enrichment sites.
"That will be so far in the distant future that it is very likely that there will a different leadership," says Samore.
