How will US President-elect Biden deal with Iran?

Incoming United States leader signals revival of 2015 nuclear deal as Tehran further reduces commitments.

Returning the United States to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal will be one of the biggest diplomatic challenges for US President-elect Joe Biden.

Iran is already reducing its commitments. Its parliament has passed a draft bill to boost uranium enrichment and stop unannounced inspections of its nuclear sites.

Iran’s rival Saudi Arabia – and Germany – have suggested broadening the agreement.
