|Iran, major powers make progress on major issues: ex-Obama advisor||
TEHRAN – Robert Einhorn, the former advisor to U.S. President Barack Obama on arms control, has said that the nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, known as the 5+1 group) have made progress on some major issues.
In an interview with the Jewish Week weekly published on August 5, Einhorn, who had played a leading role in the formulation and execution of U.S. policy toward Iran’s nuclear program with respect to sanctions and negotiations between Iran and the 5+1 countries, said that Iran genuinely wants an agreement that will lift the sanctions against it.
“That’s the principle reason why it has engaged in the negotiations. But Iran wants to reach an agreement that involves the least constraints on its nuclear program,” he said.
