Iran nuclear talks are set to begin in Geneva tomorrow.

Six world powers — the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany will meet with Iranian negotiators.

The big question will be whether or not Iran is willing to scale back parts of its nuclear program, which would include reducing the level of uranium enrichment and allowing more oversight by U.N. nuclear inspectors.

These will be the first negotiations since President Hassan Rouhani was elected in June.

Hopes are high following last month's call between Rouhani and President Obama — the first conversation between the two countries in more than 30 years.
