Vienna talks to resume on Monday Jan. 03

TEHRAN, Dec. 30 (MNA) – Vienna talks with a focus on the removal of anti-Iranian sanctions would continue on Monday January 3, 2022 after a short recess due to the New Year's holidays.

Iran's top negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani left Vienna for Tehran after meeting with the European troika (representatives of the three parties to the JCPOA) and Deputy EU Foreign Policy Chief Enrique Mora. 

Before leaving for Tehran, Bagheri Kani told reporters in front of the Coburg Hotel that he would return to Vienna on Monday to resume talks.

Earlier, Bagheri Kani met and held talks with the European Union representative in the Vienna talks Enrique Mora and the European troika (representatives of the three parties to the JCPOA).

The ongoing round of talks – the eighth round – was originally set to be held after the New Year holiday, but the teams decided to reconvene between the two holidays as an indication of seriousness.

Meanwhile, Iran's top negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani said on Monday that reaching an agreement on effective removal of sanctions against Iran is the key to the success of the eighth round of talks in Vienna to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Almost all representatives of the participant countries had underscored the priority of removing the illegal sanctions against Iran, Bagheri Kani told Iranian reporters, referring to the meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission on Monday evening in the Austrian capital Vienna.

It was agreed that the removal of sanctions be put on the agenda in experts meetings and the joint meetings between Iran and the P4+1, he added.

The Iranian top negotiator also said that the delegations have agreed to consider in the issue of sanctions removal the two main deliberations of Iran, i.e. verification of sanctions removal and assurances for that.
