Negotiators at talks to salvage the Iran nuclear deal will ask their political superiors to take decisions to resolve various thorny issues that remain as they return to their capitals for a break of a few days, officials said on Friday. Western diplomats say the negotiations, which have been in their eighth round since Dec. 27, are making progress but moving too slowly to reach an agreement before restrictions on Iran's nuclear activities contained in the landmark 2015 deal have been irreversibly hollowed out. The hardest issues remain, they say.

The United States and its allies France, Germany and Britain, the so-called E3, have said since mid-December that weeks not months remain to reach an agreement at the talks in Vienna on bringing Washington and Tehran back into full compliance with the deal. "Participants will go back to capitals for consultations and instructions... Political decisions are needed now," the talks' coordinator, Enrique Mora of the European Union, said on Twitter. A separate EU statement said talks would resume next week.
