Like the previous six rounds of talks, which began in April, the United States is participating indirectly, similar to the 2015 deal, which was known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Iran will speak directly with the remaining signatories of the 2015 deal – Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany – with European diplomats going back and forth to consult with the US side.

At stake is the resumption of a deal that limits Iran’s nuclear program to between 10 and 15 years in exchange for sanctions relief.

The United States withdrew from the agreement in 2018 during the administration of President Donald Trump, after which Iran began to back away from its commitments.

To date, Iran has exceeded its agreed limits on the amount of uranium it has accumulated, the amount of highly enriched uranium and the use of more advanced centrifuges at its nuclear facilities.

The original agreement came in response to fears that Iran was working to develop a nuclear weapon, which Iran has denied, saying its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes such as research and generating electricity.

Some information for this report has been received from the Associated Press, Agence France-Presse and Reuters.
