"While 'confidence-building' is the most important factor in the course of any nuclear negotiations which hope to succeed between Iran and the P5+1 group (the permanent members of the UN Security Council -- US, Russia, China, Britain, France -- plus Germany), the United States is talking about a new round of coercive sanctions against Iran. The US objective in continuing the 'sanctions for negotiations' policy aims at weakening the 'nuclear consensus' inside Iran. However, if successful, this policy would have the reverse result, since the unraveling of the nuclear consensus that now exists within Iran would halt any progress on the diplomatic front."
