Iran Nuclear Talks to Resume; Date Will Be Announced Today, Tasnim Says
(Bloomberg) -- A date for the resumption of the Iran nuclear talks will be announced within the next hour, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.
Tasnim, which is closely aligned with Iran’s ruling hardline establishment, didn’t say where it got the information but officials had said previously that a date for the stalled talks with world powers will be published this week.
The European Union’s Enrique Mora, who’s coordinating the indirect talks between Iran and the U.S., and Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani held talks on the matter earlier on Wednesday, Tasnim said.
An exact date for the next round of talks is the first hard signal since June that there may be a horizon for Iran’s return to oil markets. But before sanctions can be removed diplomats will have to overcome major sticking points over how the U.S. returns to the nuclear agreement it abandoned in 2018.
