US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday there is progress being made in the Iran nuclear talks and now is not the time to give up on a diplomatic solution.

"It's not time to give up, there is some progress being made," Biden said, adding the group of countries negotiating alongside the United States with Iran are "on the same page."

International talks to save the Iran nuclear deal were held in Vienna on Tuesday.

Negotiations to salvage the nuclear deal resumed on November 29 after they were suspended in June as Iran elected a new ultraconservative president.
