EU's Enrique Mora to visit Iran for JCPOA revival talks
EU's Deputy Foreign Policy Chief will travel to Iran for talks on reviving the nuclear deal.
EU deputy foreign policy chief Enrique Mora, who is also the coordinator of the Vienna Talks, will travel to Iran for talks on the revival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
In a tweet on Friday, Mora said he is going to hold talks with Iran's lead negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani in Tehran on Saturday for what he called "closing the remaining gaps" in the Vienna Talks.
Travelling to Tehran tomorrow to meet @Bagheri_Kani. Working on closing the remaining gaps in the #ViennaTalks on the #JCPOA. We must conclude this negotiation. Much is at stake.— Enrique Mora (@enriquemora_) March 25, 2022
In an exclusive interview with Al Mayadeen's CEO Ghassan Ben Jeddou, Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian assured that Iran’s foreign policy is stable in terms of its political independence from both the West and the East.
On the developments in Vienna Talks, Amir-Abdollahian said that all parties in the region will win if an agreement is reached in Vienna, adding that “we are approaching the point of consensus in the nuclear talks, but what is important for us is how sanctions will be lifted as well as guarantees.”
“In recent weeks, there have been the many US attempts to negotiate directly with us on the pending issues,” he stressed.
Amir-Abdollahian made it clear that if the Biden administration is serious, it must show goodwill before considering direct negotiations.
He went on to assure that Iran has informed the Western side that the US should prove goodwill by lifting one of the sanctions imposed on Iran.
