Iran Nuclear Talks Extend ‘Over Weekend’

Millions of Iranians took part in the annual “Death to Israel Day” in Iran on Friday, ironically coinciding with the twice-extended deadline for a deal on the Islamic regime’s nuclear program that apparently will be extended yet again.


Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Friday confirmed US Secretary of State John Kerry’s statements the day before, when Kerry said the talks “wont be rushed.”


Speaking to the state-run PressTV, Zarif said that he “doubts it” that a deal will be made by Friday, saying that in the nuclear talks “we’re making progress. It seems we are staying here for the weekend. We’re working. We’re not there yet.”


Meanwhile tens of thousands of Iranians took to the streets of Tehran chanting “down with America” and “death to Israel,” reports the Associated Press citing local media.


In Tehran, several protesters burned Israeli and American flags as is custom on Quds Day or Jerusalem Day as it is officially known. Saudi Arabia was also targeted in the protests, as the Sunni states squares off against the Houthi proxy of Shi’ite Iran in Yemen.
