Iran's FM to hold talks on JCPOA in Moscow
Iran's Foreign Minister will arrive in Moscow on March 15 to discuss bilateral cooperation and the Vienna talks.
Iran's Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, will arrive in Moscow on March 15, the spokesperson for Iran's Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
Amir-Abdollahian will discuss bilateral cooperation and the Vienna Talks to revive the nuclear deal with Russian officials.
Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell discussed Thursday the latest developments of the Vienna talks over a phone call, the Iranian foreign ministry confirmed.
During the call, Amir-Abdollahian pointed out that "There are no logical justifications for some of the new demands from the United States."
He indicated that the excessive US demands contradict its position on a quick reaching to an agreement, stressing that "The main issues and the effective lifting of sanctions should not be influenced by US excessive demands."
The adviser to the Iranian negotiating delegation in Vienna, Mohammad Marandi, said on Friday that Western countries were not constructive and positive during the Vienna talks and were deliberately delaying and procrastinating progress in order to deceive Iran.
