    Diplomats from major powers have met separately with Iran and the U.S. in Vienna Wednesday to discuss how to bring both back into compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal. When former U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal in 2018 and reimposed sanctions on Iran, the EU failed to mediate between the two sides. But now, Biden’s administration wants to revive the agreement, and both Iran and the U.S. want the other party to take the first step. What role can the EU play in this process? Professor Joav Toker of the American Graduate School in Paris shares his thought.

  • In This Story: Iran

    Iran, also called Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. Tehran is the capital and largest city.

    Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.

    Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.

    The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
