Sentiments from the West and Iran can be categorized as moderately optimistic, as both sides are trying to reach a deal that maximizes benefits and minimizes costs. However, this has crucial implications if both sides can’t come to an intersecting point because the demands on one side are greater than what the other is willing to pay – precluding further negotiations.
