Vienna Talks to Resume on Monday After New Year’s Holidays

The Vienna talks to revive Iran’s nuclear program are scheduled to continue on Monday after the New Year’s Holidays, as Iranian top negotiators said they have made progress.

Iran’s top negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani left Vienna for Tehran after meeting with the European troika (representatives of the three parties to the JCPOA) and Deputy EU Foreign Policy Chief Enrique Mora.

“We would return to Vienna on Monday to resume the talks, ” Bagheri told reporters in Vienna before leaving for Iran.

The main focus during the negotiations between Iran and the P4+1 group of countries including the UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany, was on the removal of sanctions on the Iranian side, Bagheri said.

“I hope that after a few days of a break due to the end of New Year holidays, more serious work will be done on the issue of removal of sanctions by different parties, ” Bagheri added.

The 8th round of talks in Vienna began on Monday, Dec. 27 with the participants making efforts to reach an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program in return for removing sanctions by the US and other counters.
