Both sides are in dialogue in Vienna, Austria, along with Russia and China, and the views of the Islamic Republic prevailed as a basis for serious and fruitful negotiations, said Iranian Vice Foreign Minister for Political Affairs, Ali Baqeri Kani.
According to the also head of the negotiating mission, there was resistance from Europeans to two drafts presented by Tehran, but in the end they remained as key documents to continue the talks.
Baqeri Kani assured that, if the counterpart accepts Iran’s views and positions, this could be the last round of negotiations and reach an agreement as soon as possible.
The Iranian texts contemplated the lifting of sanctions imposed on Tehran by the United States, the priority of the Islamic republic, and the return of all the signatories to the original pact sealed in 2015.
Since last November 29, Iran and the 4 + 1 group (United Kingdom, France, Russia and China plus Germany) have resumed the dialogue rounds in Vienna, after a five-month hiatus.
The goal of those talks is to find a way for the US to return to PIAC, after leaving it in May 2018.
