Iran nuclear deal: UK urges Iran to back plan to revive agreement


The UK has urged Iran to back a deal that would revive the international agreement curbing the country’s nuclear activities, at a meeting in London. Under the original 2015 deal, Iran said it would curb its nuclear ambitions in return for other countries lifting economic sanctions. The agreement collapsed when the US pulled out in 2018, but President Joe Biden has said it could rejoin. Talks are set to resume in Vienna on 29 November after a four-month hiatus. Ahead of those talks, Iran’s deputy foreign minister and lead negotiator, Ali Bagheri Kani, came to the UK Foreign Office to set out his country’s demands.(BBC)…[+]
