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 very much,” [UCI alumnus] Albert Wolf, an associate fellow at the Johns Hopkins School 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 said.
