President Hassan Rouhani brings Iran to negotiation table

Negotiations with Iran begin once again in Vienna

Negotiations have once again begun in Vienna between Western countries and Iran over the Islamic state's nuclear programme and the trade sanctions placed by the United States and Europe against the country.

The recent talks are some of the most significant steps forward that have been taken by the two sides who have historically had a very tense and unfriendly relationship. Tensions have been around the fact that the West believe Iran's nuclear programme is actually a cover for a nuclear weaponry programme, an accusation Iran has vehemently denied.

After the new comparatively liberal Iranian president was elected last summer, President Hassan Rouhani, Iran agreed late last year on a six month pause in their nuclear programme in return for the US and Europe lifting some sanctions on the country.

Now the countries are using the six month reprieve to negotiate a longer term agreement, which they hope can be reached by July, when the agreement over the six months pause comes to an end.

The talks that began this week are the third set of negotiations since the meetings began in Vienna February 2014. The Western countries taking part are the United States, France, Germany, Russia, China and Britain.
