Newsline: Iran‘s top diplomat says Tehran still wants nuclear deal

Iran‘s top diplomat said that Tehran still hopes to revive the 2015 nuclear deal despite stalled talks with the U.S. and other world powers that have led many to conclude the accord is dead. (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/jun/14/iran-says-it-hasnt-given-nuclear-deal/) The agreement, which established limits on Iran‘s covert nuclear programs in return for the lifting of international sanctions, has been on life support since President Trump repudiated the deal in 2018 and re-imposed harsh U.S. sanctions on Iran‘s economy and its trading partners. President Biden hoped to restore a version of the original accord, but multilateral talks in Vienna have lasted more than a year have yet to produce a deal.
