Can the 2015 nuclear deal be revived?

Iran says a deal for the revival of the 2015 nuclear agreement is within reach, if the West can show goodwill.

Iran has submitted two draft proposals to European powers negotiating the revival of the 2015 nuclear agreement.

The seventh round of talks in Vienna is aimed at bringing Iran and the United States back into the deal and is expected to resume next week. But competing visions of the countries involved make success a long shot.

The talks are meant to limit Iran’s nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief.

Can a new deal hold this time?
