Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian underlined on Friday that Tehran wants a good and immediate deal in Vienna but Western rush for a deal won’t cause it to cross its red lines.
As the Vienna talks reach a critical stage, the Western negotiators are trying to portray an unrealistic atmosphere of the talks.
Negotiating teams from Iran and Russia held a bilateral meeting in Vienna on Sunday as Iran and the P4+1 group are negotiating to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian has reiterated that Iran is “serious” about getting guarantees in the Vienna nuclear talks that the U.S. won’t renege again on its commitments.
Iran’s negotiating team led by Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani arrived in Vienna on Monday after the relatively short break meant to undertake consultations in capitals.
The latest round of Vienna talks came to an end on Friday with Iran underlining progress made in Vienna and the western side cautiously voicing optimism about the road ahead.
President Seyed Ebrahim Raisi says the ongoing negotiations in Vienna will result in a good deal if the other parties are determined to remove U.S. sanctions against Tehran.
Iran’s foreign minister has underlined Iran’s resolve to reach a “good agreement” through the ongoing talks in Vienna, which aim to remove U.S. sanctions, saying the Western sides to the Iran nuclear agreement have talked the talk in recent years but it is high time they walk the walk as well to secure a serious, good deal.
While the U.S. pretends it is willing to strike a deal with Iran on its nuclear program, its words and acts are in contradiction and the world is gradually realizing how the U.S. is seeking excessive demands and the Islamic Republic of Iran is right to resists and not to accept the U.S.’s return to the JCPOA.
In an interview with state TV on Saturday night, presidential chief of staff Gholam Hossein Esmaeili said that Iran entered the Vienna talks with a plan.
