An appropriate follow-up from my last post, which suggested that the sanctions against Iran may have succeeded. The Financial Times reports (here):

The US is ready to hold direct talks with Iran if it is serious about negotiations, Vice-President Joe Biden said on Saturday, backing bilateral contacts that many see as crucial to easing an international dispute over Tehran’s nuclear programme.

The currency war in Iran may have been won, with the result that the eastern Mediterranean is opening to further Turkish influence.
