       International nuclear negotiators will meet with Iran's foreign minister again this week for talks on limiting the country's nuclear program. Some nations fear that Tehran may be trying to develop atomic weapons. Iran is hoping to bring to an end crippling economic sanctions by offering new proposals at the upcoming negotiations. However, U.S. allies Israel and Saudi Arabia believe the Obama administration is moving too quickly.

       As the United Nations nuclear agency reports "productive" talks with Iran over long-delayed inspections of its atomic facilities, the United States says it welcomes the opportunity to test whether Iran is willing to submit to international standards.

       "Some have suggested that somehow there’s something wrong with even putting that to the test. I suggest that the idea that the United States of America as a responsible nation to all of humankind would not explore that possibility would be the height of irresponsibility and dangerous in itself, and we will not succumb to those fear tactics and forces that suggest otherwise," said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
       美国国务卿约翰·克里说: “有些人示意说,就算是对此进行考验,那也是不对的。我要说:美国做为一个对全人类负责任的国家,对这种可能性居然不加以探索,这种想法本身就是极不负责任的,也是极其危险的。我们不会屈从于这些恐惧战术和那些反对力量。”

       Among those concerned about overtures from Iran's new government are long-time U.S. allies Israel and Saudi Arabia.

       "When you hear the Saudis talking about what needs to be done in order to prevent a [nuclear-armed] Iran, I mean it sounds familiar. I think that you can hear that Arabic sounds familiar to Hebrew when it comes to Iran," said Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni.

       Livni also said that Israel wants to cooperate with Arab governments that are equally wary of Iran.

       "Unfortunately, the open conflict between Israel and the Palestinians makes it impossible or very difficult for them to act with Israel against Iran. Because when it comes to public opinion in their own state, Israel is still the enemy," explained Livni.
       她说: “不幸的是,以色列和巴勒斯坦人之间的公开冲突让他们很难与以色列一道行动来反对伊朗。因为在他们本国的舆论里,以色列仍然是敌人。”

       Washington has not done enough to ease Saudi and Israeli concerns about these nuclear talks, according to Adam Ereli, the former U.S. ambassador to Bahrain.

       "Their nervousness is understandable because they're seeing what is happening in Washington and New York, and they're not hearing anything differently privately from senior levels of the U.S. government," said Ereli.
       前美国大使亚当·埃雷利说: “他们的紧张不安是可以理解的,因为他们看到了在华盛顿和纽约发生的事情,他们在私下里没有从美国政府高层那里听到任何不同的讯息。”

       He believes that the nervousness about Iran's intentions is well founded.

       "I think their goal is to develop a nuclear weapon. And they're not going to accept limitations that prevent them from that, even for sanctions relief," said Ereli.

       Iran claims that it is not trying to develop atomic weapons, but is merely pursuing a peaceful civilian nuclear program. Iranian state media said talks in late October with the U.N. nuclear watchdog broke the "deadlock" between Iran and the agency.

       Progress on negotiations follows the election of President Hassan Rouhani, who is setting a new course for Iran, according to American University professor Akbar Ahmed.

       "I think there's a belief already coming out of Iran that we can and we must work within the international quarter, within the frame of the community of nations, and that we want to come in out of the cold," said Ahmed.
       他说: “我认为,伊朗方面已经有了这样的信念,那就是:我们可以而且必须在国际社会框架下与各国合作;独自在外太冷了,我们希望返回国际大家庭。”

       Kerry points out that the United States expects concrete action from Iran, not just talk.

       "Our eyes are wide open. The actions must be real. They must be fully verifiable. They must get the job done. And no words can replace those actions," said Kerry.

       Kerry made plain that only verifiable actions will lead to the easing of U.S. and European Union sanctions. The sanctions have seen Iranian oil exports fall by more than one million barrels per day, fueling inflation and undermining the value of Iran's currency.
