Ready to resume talks on its nuclear program in Vienna in November, Iran, announced the Deputy Minister in charge of the file Ali Bagheri, after a meeting he had in Brussels with the European negotiator Enrique Mora.

“I had a serious and constructive conversation with Enrique Mora about the essentials of a successful negotiation. We agreed to start negotiations before the end of November. “The exact date will be announced next week,” Bageri said.

“There is nothing to announce at the moment,” a European source said after the meeting.

The EU urges the Iranians to resume the negotiations that began in Vienna for the rescue of the 2015 international JCPOA agreement on Iran nuclear program. Talks in Vienna were suspended in June following the election of a new Iranian president.

“Negotiations must take place in Vienna,” the Europeans insist.

The Iranians had asked to meet with Mora to “discuss unresolved issues” following talks with the European negotiator on October 14 in Tehran.

“They want clarifications on the text on the table (in Vienna) and bilateral contacts with some of the signatory countries,” a European official said last week.

The head of European diplomacy Josep Borrell, coordinator of negotiations on the 2015 agreement with Iran, before setting a date for the resumption of negotiations in Vienna, must, according to the Athenian-Macedonian News Agency, consult with the other parties and the US, his government Joe Biden to declare its readiness to return to the JCPOA, following the termination of the agreement in 2018 by Donald Trump.

Therefore, the Iranian announcements were considered “premature” for this reason.

The agreement reached between Iran on the one hand and the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Russia, France and Germany on the other, offered Tehran the lifting of some of the international sanctions that are strangling the Iranian economy in exchange for a drastic reduction in its nuclear program, subject to strict UN control.

Washington urges Tehran to show “good faith”

The United States has called on Iran to show “good faith” in future talks.

“The door is not going to be open forever, as Iran continues to take provocative nuclear measures, so we hope to return to Vienna soon to negotiate and show good faith,” said a spokesman for US diplomacy.
