10. A joke indeed.
Being "ready to cooperate" isn't necessarily the same as accepting every provision of a proposed agreement.

The goal of U.S. propaganda outlets is to portray Iran as totally uncooperative, but the fact of the matter is, Iran has no obligation to accede to any demands outside the framework of the NPT. No other power - certainly not the United States - would ever allow this sort of violation of its sovereignty.

The real goal of the U.S. foreign policy establishment, is to prevent Iran from becoming a deterrent to its own designs in the Middle East: control over energy reserves, a position that offers tremendous strategic and economic power.

The U.S. is the one that needs to become more cooperative, and stop trying to establish global hegemony through militarism.
