Iran Demands U.S. Lift Sanctions in Vienna Nuclear Talks

Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.7

After one day of talks over Iran’s nuclear deal in Vienna, top nuclear negotiator Ali Bagheri strongly suggested that all agreements in former rounds of talks must be renegotiated. The U.S. left the deal in 2018 and imposed economic sanctions against Iran. Mohammed Eslami, the country’s civilian nuclear chief, said that talks in Vienna are about the return of the U.S. to the deal if the U.S. lifts all sanctions before returning. Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, warned before the talks that he saw Iran trying to end sanctions in exchange for almost nothing.
