The chief Iranian envoy, Abbas Araghchi, said he restated his country's demands for a clear timetable for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces, which he insisted have made Iraq a magnet for extremists from across the Muslim world.

Demands are part of negotiations, are they not?

The mere fact of talking to the Iranians is a concession. Do you talk to someone who is killing your family?

No. It takes two to negotiate.

No. All negotiations have demands. All demands are not part of a negotiation.

Yes, you tell them to stop the killing and that they will pay for what they've done.
