(AP) — Iran is striking a hard line after just one day of restarted talks in Vienna over its tattered nuclear deal. The comments on Tuesday suggested everything discussed in previous rounds of diplomacy could be renegotiated.

Iran’s top nuclear negotiator referred to everything discussed thus far as merely a “draft” in comments to Iranian state television. It remained unclear whether that represented an opening gambit by Iran’s new hard-line president or signaled serious trouble for those hoping to restore the 2015 deal. That accord saw Tehran strictly limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.
