The Foreign Ministry announced the chances to reach agreements on the restoration of the JCPOA


MOSCOW, Dec 13 The likelihood of reaching an agreement on the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian nuclear program has increased, there is a reason to expect some progress, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said in an interview with RIA Novosti. The seventh round of talks in Vienna on the Iranian nuclear program started on November 29. The main topic of the talks was the issue of lifting US sanctions from Tehran. Earlier, the Iranian delegation informed other negotiators about their views on various points of the deal through changes and proposals. “I think now the likelihood that we will just reach an agreement has increased compared to what it was before the negotiations were resumed. I would say that there are reasons to expect some progress. Let not fast, but at least clear, without any kickbacks and additional factors that may complicate (the situation), “Ryabkov said. Earlier, Press TV reported that Iran handed over to European representatives two draft agreements concerning the lifting of sanctions and obligations on the atom. According to Mikhail Ulyanov, Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to international organizations in Vienna, during the Vienna talks on the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian nuclear program, Iran proposed to radically change the draft nuclear document and this caused a painful reaction from Western countries. In 2015, Great Britain, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, France and Iran have signed a JCPOA. The deal involved lifting sanctions in exchange for limiting Iran's nuclear program to ensure its peaceful nature. In May 2018, then-US President Donald Trump decided to unilaterally withdraw and reinstate tough sanctions against Tehran. In response, Iran announced a phased reduction in its obligations under the agreement, abandoning restrictions on nuclear research, centrifuges and uranium enrichment levels. White House called the latest round of JCPOA negotiations a disappointment
