US-Iran Talks

Talks in Vienna starting today will try to bring both the United States and Iran back into compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal.

In Vienna today, the signers of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal will come together with what would appear to be a simple task. They want to restore compliance with an agreement that put strict controls on Iran’s nuclear enrichment, to ensure that it cannot build a nuclear weapon, in return for the lifting of punishing economic sanctions.

Both Iran and the United States insist that they want to return to the deal, known as the joint comprehensive plan of action.
