WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department has downplayed expectations for indirect talks beginning Tuesday in Vienna on Washington and Tehran to resume compliance with the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal and expects the talks to be difficult.
“We do not underestimate the magnitude of the challenges ahead. These are early days. We do not expect an early or immediate breakthrough because, as we fully expect, these discussions will be difficult,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters during his daily briefing on Monday.
