The US will again talk to Iran about a rehabilitated international nuclear treaty. They will contribute to an international conference in Vienna next week.
The deal is in the doldrums, and Washington accentuates that it is open to talks with Tehran’s regime, the US State Department rumours. Direct negotiations amongst the two countries are not yet expected.
“It is still early days, and we do not expect an immediate breakthrough, as there will be difficult discussions. But we think this is a healthy step forward,” said a department spokesperson.
Today, it had already been announced that the essential countries China, Russia, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom would meet in the Austrian capital Vienna on Tuesday to talk with Iran about the nuclear agreement. The countries want to revive the deal.
Iran has no longer complied with the agreements since the United States unilaterally stepped out of the deal in 2018 under President Donald Trump’s leadership.
In the 2015 deal, Iran agreed to restrictions on and monitoring its nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.
