Iranian minister confirms resumption of Vienna talks
Iran– There has been much debate on whether Iran and the United States will continue to make attempts at reaching a conclusion in the nuclear deal after the disastrous series of talks between the two nations but putting the rumors to rest, Iranian officials have confirmed that they will soon resume Vienna talks.
The team is all set for the discussions as the reports in local media reveal that the committee is wrapping its preparations for the upcoming meet with the US as well as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as Iran Nuclear Deal.
Like everytime the two nations met, this time too, there are high hopes from the meeting as there has already been much delay. As per the US Secretary of the States, the American government cannot wait for Iran to come on terms with the deal. Blinken had stressed on this the last time they met so this meeting becomes all the more crucial for the two nations.
The foreign minister of Iran, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, said that the team is prepared for the talks which have been decided to be held on the level of deputy foreign ministers.
The JCPOA was signed between Iran and the P5+1 nations which include the United States, China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and Germany and the European Union. These countries were assured of Iran’s participation in controlling the regional conflicts and hence agreed to withdraw the sanctions.
Despite America’s commitment to the act, former US president Donald Trump withdrew from the deal in a completely one sided manner in 2018 leading Iran to force hostility towards the US government. Trump further initiated tougher sanctions on Iran, making it struggle with its economy as well as leadership.
The two nations have openly attacked each other saying that whatever the other party is saying, they cannot agree to it. However, there has been some improvement in the talks after the United Nations General Assembly where the EU foreign policy leader Josep Borrell and Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian met and talked about resuming the nuclear talks in Vienna. Last month, Biden had already stated that the US is willing to resume the talks if Iran too agrees to do the same.
