During talks held in this capital, the representatives of Moscow and Washington agreed on the need to continue the dialogue with the participation of all members of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), including Iran, and with the US presence.
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement, at the talks launched on Wednesday, the parties discussed the possibility of achieving the full implementation of the deal approved in 2015 by Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, China, France and Germany.
The deal established limitations to Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions on that nation, but after the US withdrawal from the JCPOA and the renewal of measures against the country, Tehran began to suspend its obligations.
The Russian Foreign Ministry’s press release referred to Iran’s readiness to return to the negotiating table as soon as possible, and warned of the need to continue working on the basis of the results achieved in the rounds of negotiations held from April to June.
The deputy director general of the Russian Nuclear Agency (ROSATOM), Nikolai Spasski, and US Department of Energy Assistant Secretary David Huizenga took part in the talks.
