Iran warns US of nuclear talks failure: Iran’s foreign minister has warned that the recent attack on its Natanz nuclear facility has initiated a “dangerous spiral” and warned that there’s “not much time” for the US to return to the 2015 nuclear agreement and remove its Trump-era sanctions. The warning comes ahead of talks to be held this week between Iran, the US, China, Russia and three European countries in Vienna today. Earlier this week, Tehran said it would enrich uranium to 60%, risking pushing the talks into crisis.

Iran has been accused by Israeli officials of attacking an Israeli-owned ship in the Arabian Gulf on Tuesday, raising temperatures further ahead of the talks, Reuters reports. They said the attack was a retaliation for the sabotage of Tehran’s Natanz nuclear facility, which the Iranian government blamed on Israel.
