The Vienna talks will begin on 13 May. Negotiators will aim to resolve outstanding issues before their interim agreement expires on 20 July.
The scope of Iran’s enrichment program, including the type and numbers of centrifuges; the future of Arak heavy-water reactor; the extent of future IAEA inspections of Iranian nuclear facilities; the removal of all UN and international sanctions, including a UN resolution prohibiting ballistic missiles designed to carry nuclear warheads; and the length of the agreement itself would be among the major topics of discussion among negotiators.
