Iran top negotiator meets Mora in Vienna

Vienna, IRNA - Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister and head of the Iranian team in Vienna talks, Ali Bagheri Kani, on Wednesday met and held talks with the Coordinator of the Joint Commission of the IAEA Board, Enrique Mora, in Vienna.

Negotiators from Iran and the P4+1 group (Britain, France, Russia, China plus Germany) are at Palais Coburg in Vienna to continue discussions on a roadmap for lifting illegal and cruel sanctions imposed by the US on Iran.

Talks will continue today in various levels and formats.

Earlier, speaking in his weekly press conference, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said that Iran's attitude towards the talks was progressive, adding that it is intolerable for Iran that they waste the teams' time and energy with useless news while having demands beyond the JCPOA from Iran and offering benefits less than what was agreed in the deal to Iran.

Khatibzadeh pointed out that Iran managed to reach two new documents after the 7th Round of Talks, adding that the two new documents on the nuclear issue and removal of sanctions were achieved through intensive talks as removal of sanctions will be particularly the goal of the negotiators.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has a progressive approach in the Vienna talks and we recommend the other parties to join Vienna talks with a determination to reach a good agreement," he said.

Referring to the unconstructive role of certain European countries in the negotiations, the Iranian foreign ministry spokesman underlined that if all parties come to the Vienna talks with the agenda that the talks will bear the result in the shortest possible time, outcome will be fruitful.

"I think that the three European countries know that it is expected from them to end lack of practicality and present their serious program for their return to their commitments under the JCPOA," he added.

Khatibzadeh, in response to a question by an IRNA correspondent who asked given the recent statements by Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian to what extent is he hopeful and optimistic about reaching an agreement, said that he is hopeful that the other parties would appreciate this opportunity.

Negotiators reached the agreement after three-week-long talks in the previous round of talks and long-term denial of Iran's legitimate demands from three European states.

The agreement was on the joint text and based on the continuation of negotiations in which Iran's demands have been taken into consideration.

During the fresh round of talks, the sides are to exchange views about the contents of the text and road map for the revival of the July 2015 nuclear deal, aka JCPOA.
