Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Will the Vienna talks salvage the 2015 Iran nuclear deal? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

A fifth round of dialogue to revive the 2015 nuclear deal is underway in Vienna.

But that's only after the world nuclear watchdog and Tehran agreed to a month-long extension of an agreement allowing inspection of atomic sites.

The concession also coincides with the selection of candidates to compete to become the new president of Iran in June.

Will the positive sign boost the talks and put the nuclear agreement back on track?

And will it bring an end to some sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy?

    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.
