Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Thursday held a phone call with his Japanese counterpart Yoshimasa Hayashi, where Abdollahian said his country is ready to achieve a “durable, and reliable” agreement during the Vienna talks.
The Iranian news agency, FrontPage reported that during the conversation, Hayashi expressed Japan’s all-out support to the ongoing negotiations in Vienna aimed at salvaging Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal and removing sanctions on the country, the outlet added.
“All sides on the Vienna talks must take serious actions for a good conclusion,” Hayashi said, adding all the parties have to live up to their commitments and seize the current opportunity to reach an agreement.
Meanwhile, both Japan and Iran also discussed key elements on how to explore ways to enhance bilateral trade between the two countries.
While commenting on the expansion of economic relations between Iran and Japan, Hayashi said the two countries need to take concrete steps to remove any sort of obstacles in the way of mutual cooperation.
Hayashi also extended an invitation to Abdollahian to visit Tokyo in the near future.
Iran and the P4+1 group, Russia, China, Britain, France, and Germany, are intensively engaged in talks in Vienna trying to hammer out a deal to revive the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
