The U.S. and Iran are holding indirect talks in Vienna to revive the nuclear deal,
but experts are skeptical that a breakthrough is near. [UCI alumnus] Albert Wolf of
Johns Hopkins University speaks to CNBC’s @dan_murphy. “I don’t think we can expect

of Advanced International Studies, told CNBC on Tuesday. Skepticism over the talks
was compounded by reports that European officials would act as intermediaries between
the U.S. and Iran, rather than both sides meeting face-to-face to discuss the issues.
“There hadn’t even been any formal or informal talks between the U.S. and Iranian
sides, so it looks as if at present time, these talks are going to be a bust,” Wolf
