Iran Upbeat About Progress in Vienna Talks

Top Iranian officials expressed optimism about progress in the Vienna talks on salvaging the country’s nuclear deal, saying an accord is possible if other sides show a good faith.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian in a press briefing in Tehran, said on Tuesday that the Vienna talks are headed in a good direction.

Mr. Amirabdollahian said if other parties continue the talks with good faith and also to show seriousness, reaching a good agreement is possible.

After the seventh round of talks ended recently, Iran and western sides and the representatives of Russian and China did not find a way to break the impasse on salvaging the 2015 nuclear deal which Washington quit in 2018.

Earlier, Iran President Hassan Rouhani said that the main issues between Tehran and Washington in the ongoing nuclear talks in Vienna had been settled.

But the representatives of UK, France and Germany, known as the E3, had recently expressed frustration on the fresh demands by the Iranian sides, complicating the prospect of the talks.
