According to FARS, Iran’s news agency, Iran has halted nuclear talks with the major powers while Iranian negotiators return to Tehran for consultation.
The reason is the US blacklisted a dozen companies and individuals for evading US sanctions. These are sanction restrictions already in place. Iran says the US is acting against the ‘spirit of the agreement.’
The US agreed to not slap further sanctions on Iran. It seems Iran wants all the sanctions removed. They have already been given billions in sanction relief.
They could push the envelope until there is no resolution possible. They have done it before. While these talks are going on, Iran continues to work on its nuclear enrichment.

The talks are taking place in Vienna.
