The nuclear talks between Iran and world powers will resume on November 29 in Vienna, the European Union and Tehran say.

Talks have been stalled for long months following the election of a hardline new Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi.

“The Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will convene in a physical format on 29 November in Vienna,” the EU’s European External Action Service says in a statement, adding that it will be chaired by Enrique Mora on behalf of EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell.

In reaction, the US says a deal is possible quickly if Iran is “serious” in the Vienna talks.

Washington is believed to be increasingly skeptical that a return to the 2015 accord is in fact possible.
