Iran Can't Explain Detonators as Meetings Continue


Top diplomats from Iran and six world powers geared up on Tuesday for a crucial round of talks aimed at reaching a long-term deal regarding Tehran's nuclear program, even as questions on enrichment and detonators remained.

"If the odds of the talks collapsing are high, the stakes of failure are higher," Ali Vaez, Iran analyst at the International Crisis Group, told AFP. "Time is of the essence... We hope the leadership in Tehran has given the entire delegation ...instructions making it possible to move forward," Moscow's negotiator Sergei Ryabkov told the Voice of Russia.
