Iran’s top negotiator said after talks in Brussels this week that negotiations in Vienna will resume by the end of November.
EU spokesman, Peter Stano said, “The October 27 meeting in Brussels was useful and helped to define a path for the resumption of talks in Vienna.
“We are working closely with other partners, including Iran and other signatories of the Iran nuclear deal, to set a concrete date for the resumption in Vienna,” Stano said.
In April, Tehran and the six powers began discussing ways to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal, which was signed three years earlier by then-US President Donald Trump.
Trump then reimposed sanctions on Iran, which devastated its economy by reducing its oil exports.

However, talks have stalled since the election of Iran’s hardline President Ibrahim Raisi in June, who is expected to take a tough stand when talks resume in Vienna.
