U.S. aims to make Iran nuclear deal immune to Russian, Chinese veto

U.S. Secretary of State Kerry and Iran's Foreign Minister Zarif pose for a photograph before resuming talks over Iran's nuclear programme in Lausanne

United Nations sanctions and a future mechanism for Iran to buy atomic technology are two core sticking points in talks on a possible nuclear deal on which Tehran and world powers have been struggling to overcome deep divisions in recent days, diplomats said on condition of anonymity. Negotiators were wrapping up nearly a week of talks in New York on Tuesday, the latest round…

Hillary makes early, aggressive play for blacks and Hispanics

TheHill

By Mike Lillis Hillary Clinton is taking early and aggressive steps to assemble the coalition of voters that propelled President Obama to victory in 2008 and 2012.

It’s a prescription that, if successful, would make it exceedingly difficult for a Republican opponent to defeat her, according to political experts. Last week, Clinton highlighted the nation’s entrenched racial disparities and called for an end to mass incarcerations — a message that resonates with black voters,…
