U.S. begins indirect talks with Iran Tuesday on reentering nuclear deal

Source: The Washington Post

U.S. negotiators, headed by special envoy Robert Malley, will begin indirect talks with Iran Tuesday that the Biden administration hopes will reestablish restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for a lifting of U.S. sanctions.

“The primary issues to be discussed are actually quite simple,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price told reporters Monday. “They are, on the one hand, the nuclear steps that Iran would need to take” to return to compliance with the 2015 nuclear accord, “and the sanctions relief steps that the United States would need to take.”

But while the meeting breaks a months-long impasse between the two sides, success is expected to be anything but simple.

The meeting, to be held in Vienna, will be attended by senior officials of the six countries remaining in the deal following U.S. withdrawal in May 2018 — Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and Iran. The Europeans will form working groups among the participants and serve as go-betweens for the United States and Iran, who plan no face-to-face encounters.

4. Indirectly!



Seriously, though, likely through secondaries.
