Iran nuclear talks resume

Talks to bring the US and Iran back into the 2015 nuclear pact have resumed in Vienna for a fifth — and possibly final — round, Mikhail Ulyanov, Russia’s UN envoy to the Austrian capital, said on Twitter. Officials from world powers including the UK, France, Germany, Russia and China, besides the US and Iran, have been back and forth from Vienna in past weeks to discuss how to get the US back into the agreement and restore Iran’s compliance with the terms,, which had ended Tehran’s nuclear ambitions in exchange for an end to sanctions.

The talks should decide once and for all whether it will be possible to revive the pact that has been “on life support” since former US President Donald Trump pulled out in 2018, prompting the Islamic Republic to gradually breach the terms by ramping up its nuclear enrichment.

Ethiopians protest against US sanctions: Over 10k Ethiopians rallied Sunday to protest US restrictions on security and economic aid to Ethiopia, imposed over atrocities related to the months-long Tigray conflict, Reuters reports.
