Iran Oil Exports Focus of Vienna Nuclear Talks, Top Iranian Diplomat Says

In 2018, then U.S. President Donald Trump reimposed stringent economic sanctions against Tehran.

"The most important issue for us is to reach a point where, firstly, Iranian oil can be sold easily and without hindrance,” Iranian media quoted Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian as saying.
