Allegation on Iran's negative response for talks unfounded

Tehran, IRNA - An informed source in Tehran ruled out a recent allegation on Iranian authorities' negative response to a suggestion for holding talks with representatives of three European countries concerning the resumption of talks to revive the 2015 nuclear deal.

The source was quoted as saying on Wednesday that Iran has officially expressed readiness to hold direct talks with representatives of three European countries on the nuclear agreement dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and even invited them to visit Tehran or meet in a European capital city, but they have not yet answered.

According to the source, Iran is ready to discuss with France, Britain, and Germany nuclear talks, which were held in six rounds in Vienna, Austria.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Baqeri Kani traveled to Brussels, Belgium, on Wednesday to meet the European Union envoy coordinating talks on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, Enrique Mora to hold talks on the resumption of nuclear talks.

A reporter with the Wall Street Journal has previously claimed in a Twitter message that the Iranian deputy foreign minister for political affairs had not accepted holding talks with representatives of the three European signatories to the JCPOA.

The Islamic Republic establishment, especially Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, has time and again underlined that the principled stance of the establishment is based on returning to result-oriented talks with the P4+1 group, including the UK, France, Russia, China plus Germany on the revival of the nuclear deal.

Iran has so far reiterated that it will support "result-oriented negotiations" as an appropriate option for all sides to secure fruitful talks for the revival of the JCPOA.
