The first signals from Washington attest that the new administration won’t waste time. The team that President Joe Biden has formed sees a return to talks on a nuclear agreement with Iran as a key goal, and apparently intends to start working toward it quickly. Tehran is responding with a hard line: The Iranians expect the United States to return to the original agreement, forged with the Obama administration in 2015 and jettisoned by President Donald Trump three years later. Tehran is also demanding an end to the sanctions the U.S. has imposed in recent years.
