The U.S. and Iran will take part in indirect talks next week on how to return to the 2015 nuclear deal, the State Department said Friday, in what it said was a step forward in stalled efforts to revive diplomacy.

“We have agreed to participate in talks with our European, Russian, and Chinese partners to identify the issues involved in a mutual return to compliance with the JCPOA with Iran,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement.
