Iran's Bagheri Kani holds meeting with EU's Mora in Vienna

TEHRAN, Nov. 30 (MNA) – The top Iranian negotiator has held a meeting with the EU coordinator Enrique Mora at the new venue of the Vienna talks in Hotel Coburg on Tuesday to discuss future talks.

Ali Bagheri, Deputy Foreign Affairs and head of the Iranian negotiating team, held a meeting with Enrique Mora, EU coordinator, on Tuesday afternoon in the Coburg Hotel in Vienna.

According to the IRIB correspondent in Vienna, the meeting is said to be aimed at coordinating arrangements for further talks in the coming days.

The meeting between the EU and the Iranian diplomat comes a day after Iran and the P4+1 (the remaining parties to the JCPOA) held the first round of the new talks in the Austrian capital known as the Vienna talks to discuss the removal of the US sanctions against the Iranian nation.

At the end of the Monday talks, the top Iranian negotiator said that the parties had agreed that the removal of the sanctions should be the focus of future talks. 

Ali Bagheri Kani also said last night that the working group on the removal of sanctions would start holding meetings as of today. 

After the Vienna talks Monday, the top Iranian negotiator said the previous rounds of Vienna talks were only a “draft” that is subject to negotiations.

However, senior European diplomats are reported to have said during a briefing to reporters on Tuesday that they were now expecting to get down to business with Iran after beginning talks on Monday and that until now about 70%-80% had been completed in drafting a text for an agreement.
