Iran's FM: No speculations please, we have a plan

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif took to his official twitter account on Friday to announce that his government plans to present a plan to members of the P5+1 nuclear talks in Geneva this week, and asked his followers not to speculate.
"We will present our views, as agreed, in Geneva, not before. No Rush, No Speculations Please (of course if you can help it!!!)."
A few weeks prior to his unofficial announcement via tweet, on September 30, Zarif posted a twitter status accusing US President Obama of being "disrespectful" of Iran in presuming their only interest in negotiations is due to financial woes caused by Western sanctions.
"Pres.Obama's presumption that Iran is negotiating because of his illegal threats and sanctions is disrespectful of a nation, macho and wrong," he tweeted.
"Flip flop" by the United States in terms of US-Iran relations, he added, destroys mutual trust between the two nations. Obama must be consistent, he also tweeted.
A few days earlier, on September 24, Zarif acknowledged his intention to "resolve" the nuclear issue in this "historic opportunity." He hinted at possible proposal from Iran, saying that members of P5+1 negotiations must adjust their position on the issue according to "the new Iranian approach."
"We have a historic opportunity to resolve the nuclear issue. 5+1 needs to adjust its posture commensurate with the new Iranian approach," he posted to Twitter.
