The Heat: Iran nuclear deal talks

The Heat

There is growing speculation that negotiations aimed at restarting the Iran nuclear deal that was finalized in 2015 could be close to success. For months now on-and-off talks have taken place in Vienna aimed at reviving the major international agreement. But, the conflict in Ukraine and other concerns, mainly between Iran and the United States, have prevented a major breakthrough. On Wednesday Iran’s foreign minister said during a visit to Syria that a deal could be close but the United States is publicly less optimistic.
