Russian FM says Iran’s nuclear negotiations will resume by the end of the year-Doha News

Diplomats at the talks have warned that there will be no time to restore the nuclear deal.

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergeĭ Viklov said negotiations aimed at restoring the historic 2015 nuclear deal are expected to resume by the end of this year. Reuters Reported on Wednesday.

Russian diplomats did not provide a specific date in his statement.

On November 29, the 7th indirect negotiations between the United States and Iran began in Vienna, attended by p4 + 1 negotiators from China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and Germany.

Negotiations initially began in the Austrian capital in April this year to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, but have been postponed following the sixth round in June. They were put on hold when the Iranian elections, which saw the victory of Ebrahim Raisi, took place.

The latest round was postponed late last week, although there are no results on the recovery of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. [JCPOA] It was announced.

“7th round Vienna support It was successful in the sense that it provided a sound foundation for more intensive negotiations. We have fully confirmed that future work will be done based on the previous results. Negotiators now understand each other better, “said the Russian representative at last week’s meeting with Mikhail Ulyanov.

In 2018, former US President Donald Trump withdrew Washington from the JCPOA and imposed unfavorable sanctions on Iran to put “maximum pressure” on Iran.

Despite unilaterally withdrawing from an agreement that took years to reach, the United States accused Tehran of failing to comply with its promises under the JCPOA.

The Joe Biden administration continues to impose additional disciplinary measures while the Iranian side demands that the sanctions be lifted.

Western nations at the talks raised concerns about Iran’s uranium enrichment, but warned that there was not enough time to revive the nuclear deal.

Talk to CNN On Tuesday, Iran’s US Congressman Rob Murray said he was at risk of a “crisis escalation.”
