Iran and the United States carried out several rounds of negotiations on the reactivation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the 2015 nuclear agreement that Washington unilaterally withdrew on in 2018. The last discussions took place in June 2021, before the presidential elections in Iran, Sputnik reports.
Russia is calling for the timely resumption of negotiations on the Iranian nuclear deal and is pleased that the EU’s position on the JCPOA’s implementation coincides with Moscow’s, according to the Russin Permanent Representative to International Organisations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov.
Pleased to note that on these points Russia and #EU are like-minded. We welcome the results of Mr.Grossi’s visit to #Tehran. We call for an earliest resumption of #ViennaTalks on restoration of #JCPOA. Hope to see Mr.Mora and other colleagues at the table of negotiations soon. https://t.co/4dfjGpiJtW

The diplomat accompanied his post with a tweet by the Deputy Chief of the EU foreign service, Enrique Mora, who praised the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) and Iran’s nuclear energy agency over their agreement to continue cooperation and to allow inspectors to service video equipment installed to monitor activities at Iran’s nuclear sites. It is specified that the agreement came ahead of a meeting of the Vienna-based IAEA board of governors on September 13.
