  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Tehran Says Iran Nuclear Talks May Go Beyond August” – below is their description.

    Iran raised the possibility that talks to rescue its nuclear deal with world powers could extend beyond August, when President Hassan Rouhani is set to be replaced by a hardline judge Ebrahim Raisi.

    Diplomats ended their latest round of negotiations in Vienna on Sunday and haven’t said when they’ll reconvene. They are trying to restore a 2015 agreement that limited Iran’s atomic activities in return for the easing of U.S. sanctions.

    “If no deal is reached by end of the Rouhani government, then the Raisi government will be in charge” of the negotiations, Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabiei told reporters on Tuesday.

    Envoys have gone back to their capitals.

    “The task is to make full use of this break to ensure that all participants get final political instructions on the remaining controversial issues,” the head of Russia’s delegation, Mikhail Ulyanov, said in a tweet.

    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.
