FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Iran agrees to extend nuclear deal on cameras at sites weeks before Iranian elections” – below is their description.
Iranian authorities decided to extend a temporary agreement with international actors on access to surveillance images at the country’s nuclear sites. The announcement comes amid ongoing negotiations in Vienna to revive the 2015 nuclear deal. After Donald Trump pulled the US out of it, the Islamic Republic has also been scaling back its own commitments to the accord. The attempts to improve relations come less than a month before elections in Iran, as FRANCE 24’s Reza Sayah reports from Tehran.

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.
