Russia Sees ‘No Evidence’ of Will to Make Iran Nuke Deal

Russia sees no sign of political will in Iran and the U.S. to strike an agreement on the disputed Iranian nuclear program by the Nov. 24 deadline, the top Russian negotiator at the talks said.

“We have no evidence that the necessary decisions have been taken in the major capitals,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said over the weekend in an interview during the Group of 20 summit in Brisbane, Australia. “There was progress in Oman but it wasn’t enough to say that there was a decisive breakthrough.”
