"Europe's proposals can be acceptable if they give confidence to Iran on various issues, including political claims related to safeguards [issues], sanctions and guarantees on the durability of an agreement," IRNA quoted the unnamed diplomat familiar with the talks between Iran and the P4+1 the nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA.
While EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said the “final text” had been reached during the latest round of talks in Vienna last week, Iran emphasized it had conveyed its “initial response and reservations” on the draft text, Press TV wrote.
The Iranian diplomat told IRNA that Tehran was reviewing the EU proposals to make sure that all its key demands are guaranteed.
In a phone call on Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian told Borrell that "all parties [to the JCPOA] are expected to show seriousness and resolve in order to achieve the final text of the agreement."
Abdollahian added that any final agreement must meet the rights and interests of the Iranian nation and guarantee sustainable and effective removal of sanctions imposed on the country.
Mikhail Ulyanov, Russia's chief negotiator in the Vienna talks, also on Friday rejected claims that Moscow opposes the restoration of the JCPOA, saying the final agreement would lower tensions within the Persian Gulf and lift unilateral sanctions against Iran.
