The Vienna talks to relaunch the Iran nuclear deal are expected to resume soon. This was stated by the spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzadeh, as reported by the Irna agency, adding that the pause in the consultations is not in the interest of either Iran or the European Union, citing a recent phone call between Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and EU High Representative for Foreign Policy Josep Borrell. According to Khatibzadeh, the issues between Iran and the other participants at the table (Russia, China, France, Germany and Great Britain) have been resolved while problems still exist between the Islamic republic and the US.
Talks to revive the nuclear deal found in 2015 began on November 29 in the Austrian capital.
Tehran has called for the complete removal of the sanctions imposed on Iran by the US at the time of Washington’s withdrawal from the pact, decided by former US President Donald Trump in 2018. Since the negotiations have reopened, the US and Iran have had no talks direct but only an exchange of messages thanks to EU mediation.
