Digital Desk, Vienna. Iran’s deputy foreign minister and top negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani said the ongoing talks on the 2015 nuclear deal would continue after a gap of a few days.
On Friday, Bagheri Kani expressed satisfaction over the talks and said on Twitter that we have made good progress this week. And we will convene the Joint Commission (meeting) today (JCPOA) and continue the talks after a break of some.
Talks resumed in Vienna on 29 November after a nearly six-month pause between Iran and the rest of the party to the 2015 nuclear deal. It is formally known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The talks aim to lift US sanctions against Iran and reduce risks after the former Donald Trump administration withdrew in 2018 and reimposed sanctions on Tehran. Tehran retaliated by gradually stopping implementing the terms of the agreement from May 2019.
