The Vienna talks are focused not only on lifting crippling economic sanctions Trump reimposed, but also on bringing Iran back into compliance after it responded by suspending several of its own commitments.
He also said the U.S. must lift all sanctions imposed under Trump, not only those related to the nuclear deal.
Behrouz Kamalvandi said there had been "an accident in part of the electrical circuit of the (uranium) enrichment facility" at the Natanz complex, a day after Iran announced it had started up advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges at the site in a breach of its undertakings under a troubled 2015 nuclear deal.
Both sides have been trying to force each other into concessions of late, despite both indicating the wish to restore the pact.
Washington has sought to reassure Israel on regional security issues while restarting talks - so far indirect and inconclusive - about a USA return to the 2015 nuclear deal between major powers and Iran that the previous Trump administration quit. "Our hope is that we'll see from Iran a greater indication of what they're prepared to do and greater indication that they will take a constructive attitude in getting there", the official said, describing this week's meeting as the first step of this first phase of a potential return to the JCPOA.
The amount of new enriched uranium is relatively small but threatens to derail talks being held to revive the deal.
"All sanctions that are inconsistent with the JCPOA and are inconsistent with the benefits that Iran expects from the JCPOA, we are prepared to lift", the official said, adding that a question remained about whether Iran is serious about reciprocating the USA offer. The talks began Tuesday with Iran meeting Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation, the five other remaining signatories of the 2015 deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and those five world powers meeting separately with the USA delegation nearby. The official said the USA is now waiting for Iran to reciprocate its efforts.
Iran refused to meet directly with United States negotiator Rob Malley during the talks led by the European Union, whose envoys shuttled between the two sides in different hotels.
"Depending on the announcements it also could be a sign of whether they are approaching these talks in a constructive spirit, and taking, taking on board the fact that the USA has shown a real seriousness of goal, or whether they're going to take a different track which would raise more questions about their intention", the official said. While it has declined to elaborate, that appears to exclude sanctions formally unrelated to nuclear issues covered by the deal.
A Chinese representative told NHK the talks are moving in the right direction, and that all parties have been narrowing their differences. He said "anti-JCPOA" sanctions implemented under former President Donald Trump must be removed.
Negotiators hope to draw up an action plan for lifting U.S. sanctions and limiting Iran's nuclear program. "They continue to target via proxies Americans in the region and our partners and allies", Bowman said.
Talks are set to resume Wednesday with Iran again meeting the other nations in the deal - Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation as well as the European Union. "I see no evidence of a strategic decision by Tehran to change course and live at peace with its neighbors".
