The Joint Commission of JCPOA held Sunday a meeting in Vienna in order to reach a final version of the ongoing consultations within the sixth round of negotiations, which began Saturday.
Before the meeting, the Iranian political deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Abbas Araghchi, stated that Iran is closer than ever to reaching an agreement in the Vienna negotiations, pointing out that filling the void to reach an agreement is not an easy matter and that decisions need to be taken in the capitals of the participating countries.
Araghchi indicated that yesterday's meeting "is the last day of the sixth round of talks, which included very intense negotiations, during which very difficult work was accomplished," as he put it, adding that all the consensus documents are almost ready.
The Vienna talks on the JCPOA launched in April in two hotels in the Austrian capital.
