Senior diplomats from Iran and five world powers met in Vienna on Friday to flesh out a strategy to save the 2015 nuclear deal by keeping oil and investment flowing after the United States pulled out of the agreement earlier this month. 
For the first time since the deal came into force, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany met without the US, according to AFP. 
Iran has said it will uphold its side of the deal, which involves curbs on its nuclear program, if the remaining parties uphold theirs by making sure that Iran can keep doing business with the world, despite the revived US sanctions.
EU leaders have united behind the accord, with Brussels working on measures including banning EU-based firms from complying with reimposed US sanctions and urging governments to make money transfers to Iran's central bank to avoid fines. Russia and China have also vowed to maintain trade with Iran.
