Iran to share ideas on JCPOA talks conclusion: Chief negotiator

Iran’s top negotiator Ali Baqeri Kani said Tehran will share its ideas on how to conclude stalled Vienna talks, after the European Union's foreign policy chief said he had proposed a new draft text to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, knowns as the JCPOA.

In an Op-Ed in the Financial Times on Tuesday, EU’s Josep Borrell, who coordinates the talks, said his “text addresses, in precise detail, the sanctions lifting as well as the nuclear steps needed to restore the JCPOA.”

Hours later, Baqeri Kani confirmed Tehran has received Borrell’s “ideas on concluding the talks”.

“We, too, have our own ideas, both in substance & form, to conclude the negotiations which would be shared," Baqeri Kani tweeted.

Iran has been in talks with France, Britain, Germany, Russia, and China directly and with the US indirectly for more than a year to resurrect the JCPOA, a landmark agreement from which Washington withdrew unilaterally in 2018 and reimposed sanctions on Tehran.

Earlier in the day, President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi said the JCPOA, could be revitalized if the West acts wisely.

“The position of the Islamic Republic of Iran is logical and rational and it is obvious that if the opposite side also acts logically and rationally, the negotiations can yield result,” Raeisi said.

Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian echoed a similar stance, saying the United States must be realistic and flexible in order to reach a deal on the JCPOA.
