Nearly 60 people gathered outside the Airport, chanting "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" as his motorcade passed but they were outnumbered by 200 to 300 supporters of the president chanting: "Thank you Rouhani".

    Nuclear negotiations between Iran and the rest of the world powers began Tuesday in Geneva—the first since president Hassan Rouhani took office in August. In fact, in a true sign of the change in Tehran, Iran’s talks will be led by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, a U.S.-educated diplomat who is a big user of Facebook to communicate.  Temper your expectations for a breakthrough, but Zarif did say he hoped a “roadmap” could be agreed upon to end the decades-long nuclear dispute. The P5+1 group—the U.S., Britain, China, Russia, France, and Germany—have said that they will lift some of the sanctions on Iran if Tehran agrees to specific steps on making nuclear arms.
