While the world's attention was riveted by Zarif's charm, Araqchi's dark talk, and Fabius's antics, the Iranian and Saudis were having quiet talks in a separate room, under the benevolent eyes of the Russians and Americans.

They will open the way for the US to discuss with Iran collaboration in Afghanistan and Central Asia. The US will not jeopardize these new options. How this will impinge on the Palestinian question is too early to say, but Netanyahu has good reason for concern. No wonder he is bouncing like a yoyo.
