Iran sent a response to the EU on the project to restore the nuclear deal, writes ISNA


MOSCOW, Aug 16Iran sent the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, its response on the proposed text of the draft agreement on the restoration of the Iranian nuclear deal, and also expressed its opinion on the “remaining issues” in the negotiations, the local ISNA news agency reported, citing informed sources. Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that the Iranian authorities will respond to the European Union by the end of Monday on the final text of the draft agreement on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian nuclear program proposed last week.Russia's permanent representative in Vienna spoke about the restoration of the nuclear deal with IranAs the source added, Iran expects to receive a response from the opposite side within two days. On August 8, the coordinator from the European Union distributed the “final text” of the draft agreement on the restoration of the nuclear deal. Borrell stated that his points should be agreed upon. In early August, the negotiation process to restore the nuclear deal with Iran resumed in Vienna, when the heads of all delegations arrived in the Austrian capital. In 2015, Great Britain, Germany, China, Russia, the USA, France and Iran concluded a nuclear deal – the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program, which involved the lifting of sanctions in exchange for limiting Iran's nuclear program. In May 2018, the United States under Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA and reinstated sanctions against Tehran. In response, Iran announced a phased reduction in its obligations under the agreement, abandoning restrictions on nuclear research, centrifuges and the level of uranium enrichment. Negotiations were held in Vienna to renew the JCPOA and lift Washington's sanctions against Tehran. In December 2021, the parties reached an agreement on two draft agreements, in which the European side included the positions of Iran. Iranian spokesman Bagheri Kyani said the talks were going well, but US State Department spokesman Ned Price assessed the progress in Vienna as modest, urging Tehran to take the issue seriously. With the return of the parties to their capitals at the end of March, the negotiations were suspended. The Iranian Foreign Ministry blamed the US administration for this. The next round of JCPOA negotiations took place in Doha on 29-30 June.
