As knife edge talks take place, the future of the Iran nuclear deal hangs in the balance. But can it be salvaged? Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog
Foreign ministers and top diplomats from the United States, Germany, France and the UK are holding key talks to discuss the future of the landmark 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
The 2015 deal sought to limit Iran’s nuclear programme, with sanctions eased in return.
Under the accord, Iran agreed not to produce uranium metal or conduct research and development on uranium metallurgy for 15 years.
Former President Donald Trump, however, withdrew the US from the deal in 2018 and re-imposed sanctions, leading Iran to roll back on a number of its commitments.
