Iran says 'satisfactory progress' made in nuclear talks
Iranian negotiator satisfied with progress in talks meant to keep 2015 nuclear agreement alive.

Ongoing talks in Vienna to revive a 2015 nuclear deal between world powers and Iran have seen "relatively satisfactory progress", Iran's negotiator Ali Bagheri said Thursday, according to AFP. "Some written changes on the lifting of sanctions were established between the two parties and relatively satisfactory progress has been made over the first days of the eighth round of negotiations," Bagheri was quoted as having said in a video published by the Iranian Tasnim news agency. The indirect talks between the US and Iran on reviving the 2015 nuclear agreement resumed in Vienna on Monday. Iran has gradually scaled back its compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal it signed with world powers in response to former US President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement in May of 2018.
