Negotiations to re-establish the 2015 Iran nuclear deal will take place between all parties in Vienna next week, senior Western diplomats said Friday, the first serious attempt to defend the deal since President Baden took office in January.
Senior officials from all parties to the agreement, including Iran, France, Germany, the UK, Russia, China and the European Union, as well as senior US officials, will gather in the Rian Strian capital from Tuesday. However, there will no longer be any direct discussion between US and Iranian officials, diplomats said.
The United States withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal in May 2018. President Biden has said he wants U.S. Returning to the deal, which placed strict but temporary restrictions on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for suspending international sanctions on Tehran.
Two separate agreements will be made at the Vienna meeting, one U.S. With and with Iran on which they will take action when they return to compliance with the agreement. Once senior officials begin the discussion, they will put the details of the work to the nuclear and sanctions experts.
After two months of quiet diplomacy, the Vienna talks failed to provide that both sides could allow a return to the deal.
