United States sees common interest with China on Iran

United States sees common interest with China on Iran”

"The coordinator will also intensify separate contacts in Vienna with all JCPOA participants and the United States", the European Union said, referring to the deal by its initials.

The minister elaborated that the talks will focus on lifting sanctions against Iran in the shortest time possible in exchange for Iran "ceasing [the] remedial measures" it has introduced over the last two years in light of the United States withdrawal from the JCPOA.

On the same day, an anonymous source allegedly familiar with the negotiating process, told Iran's PressTV that Tehran had stressed in a virtual meeting with other JCPOA signatories that it will not return to nuclear accord compliance unless the USA lifts all sanctions.

The statement continued: "Participants agreed to resume this session of the Joint Commission in Vienna next week, in order to clearly identify sanctions lifting and nuclear implementation measures, including through convening meetings of the relevant expert groups".

Iran, in turn, refused to give in to America's demands, stressing that these "violations" were "remedial measures" introduced by Tehran in response to Washington's withdrawal from the JCPOA under President Trump on 8 May 2018. It is unclear how long the meetings will last for, the official said.

On Friday, the Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name for the nuclear deal, met virtually without the United States and confirmed another meeting will take place next week in Vienna.

"No Iran-US meeting. Unnecessary", he said.

Russia's ambassador to global organisations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, said "the impression is that we are on the right track but the way ahead will not be easy and will require intensive efforts. The stakeholders seem to be ready for that", Ulyanov said.

But Tehran says Washington has to lift global sanctions that were reimposed by Trump before it will make any moves to get back in line, and is refusing to hold direct negotiations with the US. Japan, South Korea and India, all aligned with the United States, mostly complied with Trump's sanctions.

Iran has been steadily violating the restrictions of the deal, like the amount of enriched uranium it can stockpile and the purity to which it can enrich it.

He stated that the agreements "will ultimately allow Iraq to develop its energy self-sufficiency and, we hope, to end its reliance on Iran".

President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal in 2018, and President Joe Biden has said rejoining the agreement is a priority for his administration.

Regarding the agreement between Iran and China, the current USA sanctions against Iran remain in place and the USA will consider any attempt to evade sanctions, he also claimed.
