World powers, Iran discuss US return to nuclear deal in EU-mediated talks
02 April, 2021, 18:23
A Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was reached concerning Iran'snuclear program in Lausanne, Switzerland, June 2015.
"We do not anticipate presently that there will be direct talks between the United States and Iran through this process, though the United States remains open to them", Price said.
They "emphasised their commitment to preserve the JCPOA and discussed modalities to ensure the return to its full and effective implementation", according to a statement after their virtual meeting.
State Department spokesperson Ned Price called the resumption of negotiations, scheduled for Tuesday in Austria, "a healthy step forward". The Biden administration and Iran have differed on any conditions for that to happen, including the timing of the lifting of USA sanctions against Iran.
The United States on Friday confirmed it would take part in a meeting in Vienna next week on the Iran nuclear deal and offered to sit down directly with Tehran.
Participants will meet in the Austrian capital "to clearly identify sanctions lifting and nuclear implementation measures, including through convening meetings of the relevant expert groups", a statement said.
The commission, which will gather on 6 April, will thus be working out steps that Washington has to take in order to lift sanctions and enable Tehran's compliance with the nuclear agreement signed back in 2015.
Russia's ambassador to worldwide organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, tweeted that Friday's session went well and the parties were prepared to talk further.
Regarding the agreement between Iran and China, the current USA sanctions against Iran remain in place and the USA will consider any attempt to evade sanctions, he also claimed.
Tehran has said that it would resume its own compliance with the JCPOA once the lifting of sanctions has been verified.
Representatives of China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and Iran - the countries still party to the agreement after the USA left - will attend Friday's meeting, according to an European Union statement.
Iran's most recent breaches of the deal are seen as part of a campaign to pressure US President Joe Biden to make the first move in reviving the JCPOA.
This is the beginning of what is expected to be a long process of negotiations to bring the Iran and the U.S. back into compliance with the deal.
