Talks to revive the 2015 Iran deal must be completed within weeks not months, European Union mediator Enrique Mora said after the eighth round of negotiations opened in Vienna on Monday night. "There is a sense of urgency in all delegations that this negotiation has to be finished in a relatively reasonable period of time. Again, I wouldn't put limits but we are talking about weeks, not about months," Mora said.

In Vienna on Monday Tehran focused on lifting crippling US sanctions against it, despite scant progress on reining in its atomic activities. The seventh round of talks, the first under Iran's new hardline President Ebrahim Raisi, ended 10 days ago after adding some new Iranian demands to a working text. Western powers said progress was too slow and negotiators had "weeks not months" left before the 2015 deal becomes meaningless.
