Iran, E3, China, Russia confer on JCPOA in Vienna

Tehran, May 31, IRNA - Iran's negotiating delegation in two separating meetings with Russia, China, EU, and E3 on Monday examined the latest Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action aka JCPOA revival talks.

Several bilateral and multilateral meetings have been held at the level of political deputies, officials, as well as at the expert levels among Iranian delegations with EU, E3, Chinese and Russian delegations in the past few days.

The two separate meetings are held on the sidelines of a new round of talks between Iran and the G4+1 – Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany – to explore ways for reviving the multinational accord.

During the meeting, the Iranian delegation outlined its views on the draft texts and the remaining issues for the Chinese and Russian sides.

While offering some comments and explanations, the Chinese and Russian delegations urge their full support for Iran's stances.

All three delegations stressed the importance of continuing to work seriously, away from any haste or delay.

After the trilateral meeting with China and Russia, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi immediately began a quadrilateral meeting with the EU, Germany, UK, and France delegations.

The fifth round of talks between the remaining participants to JCPOA began in the Austrian capital last Tuesday. The participating parties say that the talks have made good progress and a final agreement is within reach.

The Iranian delegation to Vienna headed by Araghchi is moving forward with talks with participants to the nuclear deal, ahead of another Joint Commission meeting.

The latest round of JC meetings started on April 2 with a virtual conference and is pursued by other meetings in person in Vienna.

Britain, China, France, Germany, Iran, and Russia have been attending the meetings as the JCPOA participants and a delegation from the United States in Vienna holding talks with the Europeans.

Iran has stated that it wasn’t going to have any direct or indirect talks with the US representatives as it deems such talks unnecessary.

The US has indicated that it’s willing to rejoin the JCPOA, after the 2018 withdrawal by the Trump administration, but has yet to take the first step which Iran insists must be from the American side.
