US, allies step up pressure on Iran to return to nuke talks


AP Diplomatic Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States and its closest partners are stepping up pressure on Iran to return to stalled nuclear negotiations, warning that it will face greater international isolation, new economic penalties and possibly military action if does not.

The consensus comes amid growing concerns Tehran isn’t serious about returning to the negotiations. The Biden administration and others have become increasingly pessimistic about the prospects for such negotiations even if they do resume.
