The so-called ‘six world powers’ are the U.S., Britain, Germany, China, France, and Russia. The talks will be headed by none other than Javier Solana, foreign policy chief for the European Union. So one might be able to say there are SEVEN Powers with the 7th leading the charge. — PID
JERUSALEM (Xinhua) — Thursday sees the start of a historic process with potentially earth-shattering consequences as Iran begins official talks with six world powers about its nuclear program.
It is a process that for now is expected to be limited to three months. If it does not produce results that satisfy Israel, the Jewish state could, in the eyes of some analysts, well be tempted to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.
