Iran Defector: United States' Role at Iranian Nuke Talks Is Chiefly to Serve as the "Spokesman" For Iran to the Rest of the Parties

"The rest of the parties" being, I think, the UK, Germany, and France, because I imagine that Russia and China are mostly on Iran's side already.

An Iranian journalist writing about the nuclear negotiations between the United States and Iran has defected. In an interview Amir Hossein Motaghi, has some harsh words for his native Iran. He also has a damning indictment of America's role in the nuclear negotiations.

“The U.S. negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal," Motaghi told a TV station after just defecting from the Iranian delegation while abroad for the nuclear talks. The P 5 + 1 is made up of United States, United Kingdom, Russia, China, France, plus Germany.

The defector was an editor serving as media aid to President Hassan Rouhani.

A close media aide to Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian president, has sought political asylum in Switzerland after travelling to Lausanne to cover the nuclear talks between Tehran and the West.

So Obama is acting as Iran's mouthpiece.
