Comments from an unnamed State Dept official

  • US still has serious differences with Iran on possible resumption of compliance with nuclear deal
  • US would not be going back to next round of nuclear talks if it did not think a deal was possible, but we are not there yet
  • Time is not a positive factor, this process won't be open indefinitely
  • US still hopes Iran will extend its technical understandings with IAEA, would be an issue of real concern if they didn't
  • If differences can't be bridged in the foreseeable future, US will need to regroup and consider the path forward
The new deadline is mid-August, which is the inauguration of Iran's new president. The tone in these comments has deteriorated from a month ago, when the US sounded like it thought a deal was nearly done.

The oil market is taking it all in stride and hasn't moved on these comments.
