Iranians pin peace hopes on nuclear talks

Negotiations to resume in Vienna with aim of persuading Islamic Republic to scale back its programme permanently.

    In November, Iran agreed to freeze some nuclear activities for six months in exchange for some sanctions relief.

    Under the new deal, it is hoped Iran will be persuaded to scale back its nuclear activities permanently.

    Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader, says he believes the new round of discussions with world powers will lead nowhere.

    Al Jazeera's Soraya Lennie reports on Iranians' hopes for lasting peace in advance of Tuesday's talks on the nuclear issue in Vienna, Austria.
