Digital Desk, Vienna. Nuclear talks in Vienna are ongoing and are the seventh round of talks on the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Which is currently being negotiated by EU officials and China, France, Germany, Russia, the US and Iran.
The JCPOA aims to restore the 2015 nuclear deal that the US withdrew in 2018 under the administration of former President Donald Trump, Xinhua news agency reported. Tehran has retaliated by gradually stopping implementing elements of the agreement since May 2019. Enrique Mora, deputy secretary-general of the European External Action Service, later told reporters that all sides were committed to bringing back the JCPOA.
The working group on nuclear issues will continue on Friday. Mora said the discussion was difficult due to the different stand of the parties. We’re starting with the very solid work done over several weeks by all the delegations. Russia’s Permanent Representative to International Organizations Mikhail Ulyanov in Vienna said on Twitter that Thursday’s meeting was brief and constructive. He said the parties agreed on the need to finalize the talks expeditiously.
The seventh round of talks began on 29 November and lasted five days, during which Iran presented draft proposals to restore the 2015 nuclear deal. However, senior diplomats from the UK, France and Germany expressed dismay and concern on 3 December after a thorough and careful analysis of Iranian proposed changes on talks during the last six rounds.
