Iran Comes Back to the Bargaining Table on Nuclear Program During massive protest over alleged fraud in President Ahmadinejad's re-election, Iran ended international nuclear talks in 2009. Now, Iran's nuclear development program is back on the bargaining table -- or is it? Talks are scheduled to start on Saturday, but there's real doubt they'll last much longer than that. With new elections looming in both Iran and the United States, what are the prospects for anything more?
Iran Comes Back to the Bargaining Table After more than a year since cancelling negotiations about its nuclear program, Iran will sit down on Saturday with the US and other powerful countries. But nobody is predicting what to expect. Iran insists it is not developing nuclear weapons, but it's facing crippling sanctions and a possible Israeli attack. With elections scheduled in both the US and Iran, domestic politics could prevent major concessions by either side. We hear a variety of opinions on what might go right and what might go wrong.
