Iran, big power nuclear talks hit snag on centrifuge research

China's Foreign Minister Wang, U.S. Secretary of State Kerry, Russia's Foreign Minister Lavrov and Iran's Foreign Minister Zarif attend the Iran nuclear talks at the Palais des Nations in GenevaBy Louis Charbonneau UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Negotiations between Iran and six world powers on implementing a landmark November deal to freeze parts of Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for easing some sanctions have run into problems over advanced centrifuge research, diplomats said. The dispute over centrifuges highlighted the huge challenges facing Iran and the six powers in negotiating the precise terms of the November 24 interim agreement. If they succeed, they plan to start talks on a long-term deal to resolve a more than decade-long dispute over Tehran's nuclear ambitions. Among the issues to be resolved in political discussions due to begin in Geneva later this week is that of research and development of a new model of advanced nuclear centrifuge that Iran says it has installed, diplomats said on condition of anonymity.


Pope’s Mideast visit has ‘political dimension’: cleric

Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem Fouad Twal takes part in the International Day of Faith celebration on Mount Precipice, just outside the city of Nazareth, on November 17, 2013Pope Francis's visit to the Middle East in May will inevitably have a "political dimension" and there are high expectations also among the Muslim population, the Latin patriarch of Jerusalem said on Wednesday. Fouad Twal said in an interview with I.Media, a news agency specialised in Vatican affairs, that he hoped the visit would also help develop closer relations between local Catholic and Orthodox communities. "Of course the visit will have a political dimension because this dimension is our oxygen," Twal said. Francis on Sunday announced he will travel to Amman, Bethlehem and Jerusalem on May 24-26.
