Iran says much of nuclear deal text is ready

Iran says progress has been made in Vienna, but the United States must decide on sanctions removal.
Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Ali Bagheri Kani, arrives at the Coburg Palais, venue of the JCPOA meeting aimed at reviving the Iran nuclear deal, in Vienna on Dec. 17, 2021.

Iranian negotiators have left for Vienna to resume talks aimed at reviving the 2015 nuclear deal known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). According to Iran, much of the text for the terms to bring both sides into the deal has already been written.

Negotiations aim to bring the United States back into the JCPOA after former President Donald Trump formally withdrew in 2018, as well as to bring Iran back into compliance with the terms of the deal.
