The government in Tehran has initiated political contacts with foreign governments in recent weeks on ways to save the 2015 nuclear deal after the controversial US exit.

On May 8, Donald Trump pulled the US out of the agreement, which was signed in Vienna in 2015 after years of negotiations between Iran and the six world powers (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France plus Germany).
