Iranian, Russian FMs discuss Vienna talks in phone call

TEHRAN, Dec. 13 (MNA) – Iranian and Russian foreign ministers in a telephone conversation on Monday discussed the latest developments revolving around Vienna talks between Iran and the P4+1.

During the phone talk, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov exchanged views on the latest developments regarding the trend of nuclear talks between Iran and P4+1 on the removal of oppressive US sanctions imposed against Iran.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, "The two sides emphasized and reaffirmed their mutual determination in reviving nuclear deal to its original balanced format as approved by the United Nations Security Council."
