European Union Coordinator Enrique Mora said that talks with Iran aimed at reviving the 2015 nuclear deal will resume in Vienna tomorrow (Tuesday), after a bit of a pause when diplomats went to their respective countries for consultations.
“The 8th round of Vienna talks, JCPOA will resume tomorrow in Vienna. We need a spirit of compromise to take us back to full implementation,” Mora wrote on twitter on Monday.
“In view of different undesirable trends undermining the JCPOA, there is a need to swiftly conclude these negotiations,” Mora added.
Meanwhile, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani said that the agenda for the Iranian negotiators to continue the 8th round of Vienna talks has been carefully defined.
“An agreement in which the sanctions that form the maximum pressure are not lifted will condition the country’s economy and cannot be the basis of a good deal,” Shamkhani said in a tweet message.
At the same time, Russia’s delegate to the Vienna talks, Mikhail Ulyanov said that negotiations seem to be at the final stage which requires determination and energetic efforts from all participants to get to the destination point.
Finnish Foreign Minister, Pekka Haavisto who visited Iran on Monday, hoped that nuclear negotiations in Vienna would lead to an agreement.
During a meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Hossein Amirabdollahian, Haavisto said it is needed for all sides to return to their full JCPOA commitments.
The US former president Donald Trump withdrew from the Vienna accord in 2018 and re-imposed heavy sanctions on Iran, prompting Tehran to accelerate uranium activities.
However, the incumbent US President Joe Biden has signaled that he wants to rejoin the deal.
The representatives of Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China are parts of Vienna talks and are trying to salvage 2015 Iran’s nuclear deal.
