Iran Doesn't Like the Deal

I've Been Thinking:
Hassan Rouhani was working his magic in Europe this week.
It's all about the Iranian version of the "art the deal." The "deal" is the version of the nuclear package, now that the United States has pulled out.
Today, foreign ministers are meeting to discuss the newly proposed deal. In advance of the meeting Rouhani read the proposal. And then he reached out and called the French and German leaders.
Rouhani told French President Emanuel Macron that "[t]he package proposed by Europe ... does not meet all our demands."
He told German Chancellor Angela Merkel "[u]nfortunately the proposed package lacked an action plan or a clear roadmap for continuation of cooperation. It only included some general promises like previous EU statements."
These quotes come to us from Iranian news coverage. They are very revealing, which is very uncharacteristic of Iranian leadership. They tell us Iran did not get everything they asked for.
That is the nature of negotiation. It remains to be seen if Iran will simply walk away or if they will continue to try to reach a deal.
We will have our answer soon.
