- An early follow-on technical-level meeting in Istanbul on 3 July to provide further clarification about the E3+3 proposal; increase the E3+3 understanding of the Iranian response; and study the issues raised by Iran during the sessions;
- This will be followed by contact at the deputy-level between Ms. Schmid and Dr. Bagheri;

The choice is Iran’s. We expect Iran to decide whether it is willing to make diplomacy work, to focus on reaching agreement on concrete confidence-building steps, and to address the concerns of the international community.
On June 15, the International Crisis Group issued a report warning that the new negotiations between the world’s six major powers and Iran is becoming a “diplomatic roller coaster.” The assessment warns that the talks are likely to “hit a wall” unless the parties on both sides alter their approach to the issues. The non-partisan foreign policy group urges the parties to turn the sporadic talks into “intensive, continuous, technical-level negotiations” to forge agreement about Iran’s controversial nuclear program.

You will hear our words
Even if we're a lone-star.
Islam never said to say Allahu Akbar (God is great) and decapitate.
Islam says end all your wars.
And Moses never said to stand over a praying man and pull the trigger.
From young and old, babies in need of diapers and mothers milk
Why does it rain missiles and bullets on them?
He isn’t worth enough to rent it.
Me, you, him came from a single drop.
Look at the gap between us.
Money makes the world go round.
Today, it’s money first, God second for everyone, peasant or boss.

The Islamists Are Coming
The Islamists Are Coming, edited by Robin Wright, surveys the rise of Islamist groups in the wake of the Arab Spring. Often lumped together, the more than 50 Islamist parties with millions of followers now constitute a whole new spectrum—separate from either militants or secular parties. They will shape the new order in the world’s most volatile region more than any other political bloc. Yet they have diverse goals and different constituencies. Sometimes they are even rivals.
