A peek at the Baghdad negotiating table


Here is a photo by Iran’s IRNA news agency of the Iran nuclear talks in Baghdad today.

It’s a bit hard to see. But notice which nations’ delegations are sitting directly across from each other: the United States’ lead negotiator Wendy Sherman, far left, sits across from Iran’s lead negotiator, Saeed Jalili (far right).

It was an Iranian photo editor who pointed out to me that Sherman and Jalili sit/are seated directly across from each other.

Here’s a photo, below, of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team at the talks today. Lead negotiator Jalili is the third from the right; his deputy Ali Bagheri is next to him, third from left.
