Last UPDATE: November 10
Yesterday, November 8, the Spanish service of Russia Today RT expressed a rather optimistic view on the Geneva talks dealing with the subject of Iran's nuclear program and announced the appearance of Russia's foreign minister Lavrov in Geneva for the next day, Sunday November 9. As U.S. foreign secretary Kerry already arrived there on Saturday, expectations are high for some kind of deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The U.S. broadcaster CNN extensively covered that story and hinted at a widespread popular interest of the Iranian people in the normalization of foreign relations between Iran and the West. That estimation has been quoted by a news service from Dubai on the same day.

However, the proposed solution, now negotiated behind closed doors in Geneva, seems to be tricky enough to create reservations on the U.S. side and clear disapproval on the Israeli side.
