Iran Negotiator Says No Guarantee For Final Agreement in Vienna

Iran’s Chief Negotiator, Ali Baqeri Kani on Thursday said that having progress in Vienna talks with western representatives does not guarantee a final agreement as world powers need to take certain decisions.

“Being near the finish line is no guarantee to crossing that. It requires extra caution, much perseverance, additional creativity and a balanced approach to take the last step,” Kani wrote on his twitter page.

“To finish the job, there are certain decisions that our Western interlocutors need to take,” he added.

Kani returned to Iran on Wednesday for a short visit to make regular necessary consultations, while European negotiators engaged in Vienna talks also returned to their respective countries to consulate with the top officials.

UK, France, Germany, Russia, and China directly and US indirectly resumed talks in the Austrian capital of Vienna to salvage Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal known as JCPOA.

Tehran has repeatedly asked for guarantees from the US government for any possible future agreement that it would not abandon the agreement once again. Former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018 and reimposed more economic sanctions, promoting Tehran to accelerate its nuclear activities.
