US ready to risk Israel, Saudi wrath to seal Iran deal

The United States remains ready to upset key allies Israel and Saudi Arabia by securing a swift nuclear deal with Iran despite the failure of talks in Geneva.

Three grueling days of discussions between Iran, the United States, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany ended yesterday without agreement.


The parties had been hoping to broker an accord that would curb Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
