"A constructive forum"

Iran claims the lifting of all the sanctions that weigh on it and refuses to meet the US diplomats until these penalties remain in effect. EU negotiators therefore provide an intermediary role between Iran and the United States.

Washington considers, however, that the Vienna discussions are "a constructive forum", said Wednesday the American state department. "The discussions have so far been professional and they produce what we thought they would produce," said Ned Price journalists, spokesperson for the State Department. "They provide us with a better understanding of Iran's mindset and we believe that Téhran's reversal will leave this session of discussions with a better understanding of what we are willing to do," said Ned Price.

5 Things to Know About 'Minari' Star Steven Yeun .
History in the making! Steven Yeun is earning plenty of praise for his role in Lee Isaac Chung‘s Minari — but he’s not a Hollywood newcomer. The Korean-American actor rose to stardom in 2010 when he was cast as Glenn Rhee in AMC’s The Walking Dead. While viewers were devastated when his character was killed off during the season 7 premiere in 2016, Yeun thought Glenn’s story had come to a “natural end.” Though he’s “still really close with all the costars,” Yeun told IndieWire in October 2018 that he doesn’t see himself exploring more of The Walking Dead universe any time soon. “Sometimes people pitch to me, ‘Dude, wouldn’t it be so cool if you did a Glenn origin movie?'” he said at the time. “And I’m like, ‘No, that’d be horrible.’ That was so long ago. I was another person. I don’t think I could go back there. That person was inherently trapped in whatever people thought he was. I fed into it and I believed in it, too — until I got out.” After leaving the apocalyptic series, Yeun appeared in Boots Riley‘s Sorry to Bother You and Lee Chang-dong‘s Burning, both of which debuted in 2018. He’s also lent his voice to video games and animated shows, including Netflix’s Tuca & Bertie. Though it’s not his first role, Minari is certainly his most impactful. The semi-autobiographical film follows a Korean-American family as they settle down in rural Arkansas in the 1980s. Yeun, who portrays the movie’s father figure, connected to the project on a deep level.
