Iran, US to resume indirect nuclear talks this week

Iran and the United States plan to resume indirect talks this week in a Gulf country, in a fresh bid to revive the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, both sides said Monday.

They did not name a country, but Iranian state media said the negotiations would be held in Qatar.

The talks will be separate from broader EU-mediated negotiations in Vienna between Iran and major powers, the bloc’s top diplomat Josep Borrell said Saturday in Tehran.
