Iran and six major powers resume talks today in Vienna over a permanent nuclear agreement. The talks aim to settle international concerns about Tehran’s nuclear activities in exchange for lifting the tight web of sanctions on Iran.

U.S. and European officials say they hope the Ukraine crisis won’t complicate the talks, however there are concerns the escalating crisis could have an effect on the surprising unity the six-power group has shown in recent years.

NPR’s Peter Kenyon discusses the nuclear talks and how the crisis in Ukraine might affect the negotiations, with Here & Now’s Robin Young.
