Even in its afterlife, the Iran nuclear deal continues to polarize.
After President Donald Trump offered to talk to the Iranians without preconditions, it seems there could be another round of US-Iranian negotiations.
However, those negotiations won’t look anything like they have in the past—and Russian President Vladimir Putin will likely play a starring role as peacemaker.
Though Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei initially shot down any talks with the US, anyone certain that the Iranians won’t negotiate any modifications on the nuclear deal shouldn’t be so sure.

Even in its afterlife, the Iran nuclear deal continues to polarize. Those who supported the agreement proclaim loudly that Iran will never negotiate any adjustment to it, while its opponents argue U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of it will produce a better deal.

Trump himself seems to believe a better deal is possible, having recently offered to talk to the Iranians without preconditions. On Monday, Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei indicated he disagrees, declaring: “I ban holding any talks with America. … America never remains loyal to its promises.”See the rest of the story at Business Insider
