Vienna talks witnessing rapid developments

Vienna, IRNA – Developments on Saturday that marked the third day of talks in Vienna aimed at removing anti-Iran sanctions gained momentum, with intense negotiations taking place at Palais Coburg, the venue of the talks.

Saturday saw a series of meetings by different teams participating in the talks.

On the afternoon, Iran's top negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani held a meeting with the EU’s coordinator of the talks Enrique Mora that lasted one and a half hour.

After that, Iran’s expert delegation came to Palais Coburg where Berouz Kamavaldi, the spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), told reporters outside the hotel that talks over safeguard issues are ongoing.

In response to a question on how the talks were going on, Kamalvandi said: “It’s not bad.”

In less than ten minutes, Bagheri Kani returned to the venue of the talks, but left after ten minutes.

Simultaneously, the Russian and Chinese delegations entered Palais Coburg to join the talks.

China's chief negotiator Wang Qun met Mora as well.

Expert-level meetings also took place at Palais Coburg on Saturday morning, which were followed by talks between the European Union and American negotiators in a nearby hotel.

The ongoing negotiations in Vienna are aimed at reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA, and removing the anti-Tehran sanctions that the United States reinstated after it withdrew from the accord in May 2018.

The Vienna talks resumed after a three-month pause, with a final agreement awaiting political decisions by the West, especially the US, which violated the JCPOA by its pullout.

The Iranian team stresses that an agreement requires the sustainable removal of the sanctions in a guaranteed way, and that no issue should remain in order to be used as a pressure tool against Iran in future.
