All parties involved in the Iran nuclear deal, have met in Vienna, Italy, to try and salvage it after Donald Trump’s withdrawal last year. Britain, China, France, Germany, and Russia are struggling to save the 2015 accord with Iran, as the country has been gradually increasing its nuclear activities since last year. Chinese Foreign Ministry official, Fu Cong, has said that the US is making a mockery of international law by trying to restore these sanctions.

The United States, in the meantime, has continued to insist on the reimposition of international sanctions on Tehran and the extension of the conventional arms embargo against it. What had provided a boost to these talks in Vienna was an agreement from Iran to have inspectors from the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), to visit two sites suspected of having hosted undeclared activity in the early 2000s. “Iran is voluntarily providing the IAEA with access to the two locations specified by the IAEA,” said Rafael Grossi, the head of the IAEA.
