John Kerry stuck in Lausanne for more talk with Iran.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has canceled a scheduled trip to the United States thanks to Iran’s unsurprising resistance to sign an agreement on its nuclear program three days before a deadline imposed by the Obama administration.

As reported here last night, the headlines about an “imminent” agreement are more of an expression by naïve Western leaders and analysts than they are a reflection of reality.

Kerry was planning to fly Sunday to an event honoring the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Instead, he will be hold more talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif after having going through eight rounds of conversations in four days.

Associated Press journalist Mat Lee tweeted Sunday morning:

Big news from #Iran talks:

Q: How’s it going?

Kerry: It’s going all right. We’re working.

Q: Think we’ll get there?

Kerry: I don’t know.

Kerry and Zarif’s meeting Sunday lasted for 75 minutes.

Anyone betting on an agreement a day before the March 31 deadline should take heavy odds and be prepared to lose.

As for March 31, remember it is followed by April Fool’s Day.
