Iran said it had discovered a new “realism” for Western nations prior to further negotiations in Vienna aimed at saving the agreement on a nuclear program.

At a briefing in Tehran, provincial spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Monday that discussions in this round would be more “detailed” towards reviving the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

“We feel a withdrawal from the Western nations in the Vienna negotiations, or rather realism. There can be no demand beyond the nuclear deal,” Prime Minister Katib Zade told reporters.

But “it’s too early to determine if the United States and the three European countries have created a true agenda to promise to lift sanctions,” he said.

“Today is the time to show that conflicting parties can show their commitment and progress in the areas of sanctions lifting, assurance and verification, but little progress has been made in that regard,” a spokesman said.

He also confirmed that Iran is exchanging views and suggestions with the United States informally and through other negotiating parties.

United States pursuing diplomacy

Washington expressed concern on Thursday New Iranian space launch Last week, however, returning to the nuclear deal showed that it was still pursuing diplomacy.

“The United States remains concerned about the development of Iran’s space launch vehicle, which raises significant proliferation concerns,” a State Department spokesperson said.

“Iran’s nuclear program was effectively constrained by the JCPOA,” a spokesman said.

“That’s why we want each other to return to full compliance with the transaction.”

President Joe Biden, Trump’s successor, supported the return to the nuclear deal, and Washington indirectly participated in European-mediated negotiations on the revival of the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Negotiations to restore the Accord began last year, but stopped in June as Iran elected super-conservative president Ebrahim Raishi.

They resumed in late November and the latest round is Resume on Monday After a three-day break during the New Year holidays.
