Iranian media: Nuclear talks in Vienna to resume on Thursday

Negotiations between Iran and world powers on a return to the 2015 nuclear deal will resume on Thursday, Iran’s Tasnim news agency says.

The outlet reports that the timing was agreed upon by Iran’s nuclear negotiator Ali Bagheri and European Union envoy Enrique Mora.

Negotiations in Vienna aimed at reviving the Iran nuclear deal were suspended Friday as European diplomats expressed “disappointment and concern” at the latest proposals from Iran, which Washington has said were not serious.

“Tehran is walking back almost all of the difficult compromises crafted after many months of hard work,” senior diplomats said, adding that the Iranian delegation had demanded “major changes.” They went on to say it was “unclear how these new gaps can be closed in a realistic timeframe.”

The talks had been halted on Friday afternoon for diplomats to consult with their governments.
