The stakes are high ahead of this week’s Iran nuclear talks in Vienna

Iran is raising the stakes ahead of upcoming nuclear talks: One of Iran’s nuclear negotiators has announced that the country will go ahead and enrich uranium to 60% for the first time ever, a few days after an apparent attack on one its nuclear facilities and hours before talks resume in Vienna to resurrect the 2015 pact with world powers, the Associated Press reports. The country’s foreign minister warned yesterday that the attack, which Tehran labelled an act of “nuclear terrorism” committed by Israel, threatens to upend the current negotiations, which aim to get the US back into the accord and end its sanctions regime in return for Iran getting back into compliance with the terms of the agreement.
