Vienna meeting signals new push to revive Iran nuclear deal

Vienna meeting signals new push to revive Iran nuclear deal”

"But we believe this is a healthy step forward", Price said in a statement.

World powers and Iran will meet by videoconference Friday (2 April) to discuss the possible return of the United States to the Iran nuclear deal, in talks mediated by the EU.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif immediately stressed that no meeting was planned between officials from Iran and the U.S.

Price said that the "primary issues" for discussion in Vienna will be "the nuclear steps that Iran would need to take in order to return to compliance with the terms of the JCPOA, and the sanctions relief steps that the United States would need to take in order to return to compliance as well". "The path ahead of the U.S.is fully clear".

Participants will meet in the Austrian capital "to clearly identify sanctions lifting and nuclear implementation measures, including through convening meetings of the relevant expert groups", a statement said.

"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.

"No Iran-US meeting. Unnecessary", he wrote on Twitter.

"We are ready to pursue a return to compliance with our JCPOA commitments consistent with Iran also doing the same", Price said Thursday.

The Iranians have called for the U.S.to lift economic sanctions, which were reimposed by former President Donald Trump after he unilaterally quit the nuclear deal in May 2018.

Russia's ambassador to worldwide organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, said that "the impression is that we are on the right track, but the way ahead will not be easy and will require intensive efforts".

While U.S. officials will be present in Vienna, Iran as yet seems unwilling to engage directly with Washington. The U.S.in turn has demanded that Iran return to full compliance with its obligations under the deal.

The online meeting will be chaired by the deputy secretary general and political director of the European External Action Service (EEAS) Enrique Mora on behalf of EU High Representative Josep Borrell.

The Vienna talks will also include the governments of Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation which all remain parties and supporters of the nuclear deal negotiated under former USA president Barack Obama.

The top Iranian diplomat also emphasised that the goal of the Vienna negotiations is to "rapidly finalise sanction-lifting and nuclear measures for [a] choreographed removal of all sanctions, followed by Iran ceasing [its] remedial measures".
