Andrea Mitchell: ‘Death to Israel Day’ Makes It Harder for Iran to be Seen Working With US

MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” host and NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell said that the celebration of “Death to Israel Day” in Iran made it “not a great day” for Iran to reach a deal and “be seen shaking hands with the secretary of state and bringing back an agreement with the US” on Friday.

Mitchell described the talks as “moving backwards, not forwards…the talks are stalemated. They’re at an impasse. Both sides are blaming each other.” And that “real trouble” with the talks was emerging.

Later, she stated, “Iran’s negotiators, meanwhile, have to deal with their own problems back home. They’ve got the hardliners back home in Tehran. And just for perspective, today is known as Quds Day in Iran, or Death to Israel Day, and the anti-American and anti-Israeli protests have been going on in the streets, there have been American flags burned, along with posters of President Obama and Israel’s prime minister and the Saudi king, all being burned on the streets. So, this is not a great day, even if they were to reach a deal, to be seen shaking hands with the secretary of state and bringing back an agreement with the US, even if there were a deal to be done.”
