Iran nuclear talks enter final stretch, but challenges remain

Iran, the US and other world powers are nearing a deal to revive a 2015 agreement that curbs Tehran’s nuclear work in return for relief from international sanctions, the Wall Street Journal’s Laurence Norman writes.  Negotiators are still wrangling over some significant final demands from Iran, but the delegations have in recent weeks made the most significant progress since talks to revive the deal began in April 2021. Officials involved in the talks say an agreement could be imminent. Reviving the 2015 accord, which former President Donald Trump exited in 2018, is a top foreign policy goal of the Biden administration.

The Biden administration says it wants to restore the agreement and then use that as a platform to negotiate a longer, stronger agreement. Tehran has repeatedly criticized the Biden administration for keeping in place the Trump-era sanctions even while seeking to restore the deal.
