US, Iran Start Indirect Nuclear Talks Via European Channel

In a Viennese hotel, officials from Britain, France and Germany, will act as intermediaries between Iran and the US, shuttling between both delegations.

Russia and China, the other parties to the 2015 nuclear pact, are also attending, Reuters reports. Tehran has repeatedly rebuffed "direct and indirect negotiations" while Washington said on Monday it expected the talks to be difficult. Neither side expected any early breakthrough.

The impact of the blow on the process by the former administration of Trump has been hard and it involved even some allies of the US like Albania which led the relationship with Iran to the dead point. It is to be seen how things will change against the background of a new format of the US diplomacy. /
