TEHRAN, Aug 9 (NNN-IRNA) – Iranian foreign minister said yesterday that, if parties to the Vienna talks, especially the United States, act realistically and avoid adopting unconstructive approaches, the road will be paved for an agreement on the revival of a 2015 nuclear deal.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks, in a phone conversation with European Union (EU) foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, after the latest round of the Vienna talks came to an end earlier in the day, according to the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s website.
Amir-Abdollahian added, the Iranian negotiating team took part in the talks in the Austrian capital, with the sincerity to reach a deal and put forward constructive ideas to resolve the remaining issues.
Tehran has informed Enrique Mora, EU coordinator for the Vienna talks, of its views and considerations about his proposed ideas, the Iranian foreign minister said.
All parties are expected to show determination and sincerity to come up with a final text of a draft agreement, he added.
A final deal must fulfil the rights and interests of the Iranian people, and guarantee sustainable removal of anti-Iran sanctions, Amir-Abdollahian noted.
Borrell tweeted earlier in the day that, “what can be negotiated has been negotiated, and it’s now in a final text.”
“However, behind every technical issue and every paragraph lies a political decision that needs to be taken in the capitals,” he said, adding that, “if these answers are positive, then we can sign this deal.”
The latest round of talks, which had begun on Thursday, following a five-month hiatus, came to an end yesterday.– NNN-IRNA
