Ulyanov said that Russia does not rule out that there will be another meeting on JCPOA at the level of heads of delegation by this week in Vienna. He added that has a negative attitude toward US statements about certain 'plan B' at JCPOA negotiations.
EU Deputy Director for External Action, Enrique Mora, said, “I feel positive that we can be doing important things for the next weeks,” adding that all participants showed they are willing to listen to the positions and “sensibilities” of the new Iranian delegation.
At the same time, Iran's team was clear it wanted to engage in “serious work” to bring the deal back to life, he said.
