Main US negotiator on Iran's nuclear deal to leave post after June 30
US Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman has stated that she plans to leave the administration shortly after the June 30 deadline for a final deal on limiting Iran’s nuclear program, The New York Times reports.
“It’s been two long years,” the under secretary of state for policy said. With her departure, all the top officials who have negotiated with Iran will have left the administration.
"It’s incredibly complex to deal with Congress, with the press, our negotiating partners and then, when you are done with that, negotiating with the Iranians," Interfax cited Sherman as saying.
The New York Times also cites the opinion of the Secretary of State John Kerry, who believes that Sherman's “mentoring of colleagues, her experience, her passion for diplomacy, her calm in the storm set her apart as a great under secretary of state.”
