|U.S. hasn't offered any sanctions relief to Tehran: Sherman||
TEHRAN – The U.S. has not offered any sanctions relief to Iran, the lead U.S. negotiator with Iran, Wendy Sherman, told Channel 10 ahead of talks between Tehran and world power scheduled for November 7-8 in Geneva, the Jerusalem Post reported.
"We have not offered any sanctions relief on Iran, and we have not removed any sanctions," Sherman said in an excerpt of an interview with Channel 10, which was set to be broadcast in full on Sunday.
The Obama administration has been seeking to dissuade U.S. lawmakers from imposing fresh sanctions against Iran to allow for flexibility going into the second round of talks of Tehran's nuclear program.
According to the U.S. under secretary of state, Israel's security interests will not be dismissed during the negotiating process, which she said is still in preliminary stages.
