Mora arrived in this capital on Tuesday night with the aim of boosting the negotiations that took place in Vienna, the capital of Austria, in order to revive the 2015 agreement between Iran and the main world powers, Irna news agency reported.
Prior to his arrival in Iran, the EU representative tweeted that he was “traveling again to Tehran to meet with @Bagheri_Kani and other officials on the #ViennaTalks (nuclear talks) and other issues.”
Mora remarked as a priority the continuity of the work to reach the closure of the gaps still remaining in the present negotiation between the parties for the resumption of the nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Mora’s visit is aimed at narrowing the differences between Iran and the United States in order to pave the way for Washington to rejoin the JCPOA.
The talks to revive the JCPOA in Vienna opened the eighth round of contacts since April 2021 between Iran and the 4+1 Group (comprising the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China, plus Germany).
The talks recently moved to the written phase at Mora’s suggestion for the negotiating teams to return to their respective capitals and hold consultations as deemed relevant by their States.
According to Tehran, reactivating the JCPOA is the goal of the protracted negotiations due to Washington’s indecision, which remains unresolved on key issues such as the removal of sanctions and guarantees that it will not withdraw from the pact again.
