Vienna Nuclear Talks | The US State Department Spokesman, Ned Price, affirmed that his country believes that the indirect talks being held in Vienna regarding the return of Iran’s compliance with the nuclear agreement must be resumed “quickly”.
He said, “The diplomatic track still exists,” noting that, “Tehran said it would return to talks soon.”
“We hope that their definition of the word ‘relative’ will match our definition of it, and we would like to resume negotiations in Vienna as soon as possible,” he added. “Negotiations cannot continue indefinitely,” he added.
We Must Return Quickly to the Vienna Nuclear Talks With Iran
For his part, Iranian Foreign Minister Amir Hossein Abdullahian confirmed, last Saturday, that his country would soon return to the negotiating table in Vienna on reviving the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.
Since April, Vienna has hosted 6 rounds of negotiations under the auspices of the European Union to save the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program in light of the United States’ withdrawal from it in 2018 during the term of its former president, Donald Trump, who imposed painful sanctions on the Iranian party, to which the latter responded by reducing its commitments to the deal since 2019.
Tehran refuses to negotiate directly with the administration of US President Joe Biden before lifting sanctions, while Washington insists on the need to advance the principle of step for step.
The negotiations later stopped in light of the changes in the executive authority in Iran against the backdrop of the presidential elections in August, which were won by the conservative candidate, Ibrahim Raisi./End
