Iranian President Hassan Rouhani yesterday said that talks in Vienna on rescuing a troubled 2015 nuclear deal had opened a "new chapter".
An Iranian delegation met Tuesday with representatives of the remaining parties to the agreement to discuss how to bring Washington back into it and end crippling US sanctions and Iranian countermeasures. US wasn't at the talks as Iran has refused to meet the US delegation so long as its sanctions remain in place.
US President Joe Biden has said he is ready to reverse the decision of his predecessor Donald Trump to withdraw from the agreement and reimpose unilateral sanctions.
"A new chapter has just been opened yesterday," Rouhani told a cabinet meeting yesterday. "If (Washington) shows it is honest and sincere, ... I think we'll be able to negotiate."
The talks are to resume in Vienna tomorrow, a diplomat familiar with the discussions said.
