"The U.S. is looking for Iran to agree to halt its production of more highly enriched (20 percent) uranium. It wants Iran to state that it will install no more advanced centrifuges at its enrichment sites. It also wants it to halt work on its heavy water reactor at Arak. To squeeze these concessions out of Iran, the US and European allies look prepared to make a more generous offer to peel back sanctions than they had made until now," James Blitz writes in the Financial Times.
"Netanyahu fears that the removal of even one brick from the wall of sanctions would cause the entire edifice to crumble. And he's right: There are many countries, and certainly many multinational conglomerates, that are eager to go back to business as usual in Iran; any softening, even temporarily, in the sanctions program, could spur at least some of them to rush in," Jeffrey Goldberg writes for Bloomberg.
"The U.S. and its allies clearly have significant gaps in their knowledge about nuclear cooperation between Iran and North Korea. But the implications of any such cooperation are profound. Given the closed nature of both rogue states, Washington is long overdue in increasing its relevant intelligence-collection efforts and re-examining whether Russia or China are also involved," John Bolton writes in the Wall Street Journal.
