Iran on Monday dismissed reports that it may postpone the Vienna talks to restore the nuclear agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) until President-elect Ebrahim Raeisi assumes office.
Iran’s representative to the Vienna-based international organizations told a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors on Wednesday that nuclear remedial measures are evidently within Iran’s rights in strict accordance with the 2015 nuclear agreement’s provisions. He stressed that Iran cannot stay silent amid continued US bans.
The administration of the next Iranian president will have to abide by the final decision that the Establishment will make about the 2015 nuclear deal following the ongoing negotiations on the revival of the agreement, the government spokesman said.
Iran’s top negotiator said there are still sticking points in the Vienna talks on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal between the Islamic Republic and world powers, but all parties agree that the issues of dispute are not irresolvable and that they could be worked out.
Iran’s top negotiator to Vienna talks on the revival of the landmark nuclear deal between the Islamic Republic and world powers said despite intense efforts made by all involved parties to reach a conclusion in the ongoing fifth round of talks, he is not sure that this will be the final round of negotiations.
The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said Tehran continues to enrich uranium to 60 percent purity level as talks between the country and the remaining signatories to a landmark nuclear deal clinched in 2015 continue in the Austrian capital, Vienna.
