The #JCPOA was an agreement reached between Iran and the P5+1 (5 permanent UNSC members + Ger.), whereby #Iran would decrease uranium enrichment & allow IAEA monitoring of its nuclear facilities in exchange for economic & trade incentives & removal of sanctions.#ViennaTalks pic.twitter.com/H0tDP62DbC— Al Mayadeen English (@MayadeenEnglish) December 2, 2021
Since April 2021, numerous rounds of negotiations for the re-entry of the US into the Iran deal have taken place in the Austrian capital between Iran and the five remaining JCPOA signatories: Britain, France, Germany, China, and Russia.
However, the Vienna talks excluded American diplomats due to their country’s withdrawal from the deal.
Earlier yesterday, in an interview for Al Mayadeen, Seyed Mohammad Marandi, said the negotiations between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) indicate the possibility of a solution, but the decision is political.
According to Marandi, Iran has no problem with the Europeans, the Russians, and the Chinese. Rather, the problem lies in the American position.
Marandi indicated that the decision regarding the revival of the nuclear agreement in the West is in the hands of the Americans, not the Europeans.
