Six rounds of talks on the nuclear pact
So far, six rounds of talks on the revival of the nuclear pact have been held in Vienna, with delegations from Germany, Great Britain, France, China, Russia and the European Union participating from the world powers. The US participated in them indirectly, because Tehran did not agree to the presence of the Americans at the negotiating table.
However, talks were cut short when a new Iranian president assumed power in early August Ebrahim Raisi, which while supporting the continuation of negotiations, but it is widely expected in Iranian political circles that it will take a firmer line on the issue than its predecessor Hasan Rowhani.
The 2015 nuclear deal with Iran provided that Tehran would significantly reduce uranium production, and the international community would lift the economic sanctions imposed on the country. In 2018, then-US President Donald Trump withdrew Washington from the deal and imposed new economic sanctions on Iran.
