(Newser) – The latest Iran/six-nation talks over the country's nuclear program failed in June, leading to tough sanctions. But Iran is now ready to resume talks once more, says Saeed Jalili, Iran's top nuclear negotiator, reports the AP. No date was suggested in today's announcement, but talks should occur before the month is through. "We have accepted that these talks be held in January," said Jalili, "but till now the details have not been finalized." The five permanent members of the UN Security Council, along with Germany, have been trying to persuade Iran to return to the negotiating table.

We are the biggest oppressors of the world, if anyone should be trying to take nukes away it should be from our corrupt, irresponsible government.

I say no more talking - You had your chance, & it will not do anygood anyway. Let them suffer & if the peoples' of Iran are foolish enough to believe that anyone but their own heads are to blame, then they are truly a doomed nation.
