Representatives from Iran and other relevant parties will meet in Vienna on Thursday to continue their nuclear talks, which restarted on Nov. 29 after a months-long hiatus, Tasnim news agency reported Tuesday.
“The correspondent of Tasnim news agency was informed that the negotiating delegations will resume their talks in Vienna on Thursday,” the Iranian news agency said.
The date of the upcoming meeting was decided by Ali Bagheri Kani, Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, and Enrique Mora, deputy secretary-general and political director of the European External Action Service, in a phone conversation on Monday, it added.
The talks, aimed at reviving the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, will focus on the removal of sanctions against Iran and the country’s nuclear program.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian has called for a “comprehensive deal” through diplomatic means in the nuclear negotiations.
“We will follow the path of diplomacy and talks in Vienna within the framework of the logic of negotiation and understanding,” Amir Abdollahian wrote on his Instagram account on Monday.
Iranian representatives in the talks are “serious” for “a good and comprehensive deal,” he said.
