Negotiations are under way to resume the nuclear deal with Iran



High-level diplomats are meeting in Vienna to help the United States pave the way for re-joining the nuclear pact with Iran.

Representatives of five signatories – China, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom – will resume talks on Saturday, but America will not be among them, according to a report.

Under the deal, Iran has benefited economically in exchange for reducing its nuclear program. After the US withdrew from the deal, Iran began to enrich uranium at ever higher levels.

Russia’s spokesman Mikhail Uyanov wrote on Twitter that JCPOA participants had “informal talks” with the United States, but that Iran was “not yet ready” for a meeting with the United States.
