“Today in the course of Vienna Talks on JCPOA the working group on nuclear issues held a useful meeting. We observe indisputable progress. Sanctions lifting is being actively discussed in informal settings,” Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to international organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.
The eighth round of talks aimed at removing anti-Iran sanctions began Monday in Vienna. Iran has already put forth two draft documents during the previous rounds which it says will be the basis of talks in the Austrian capital.
Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Ali Bagheri has renewed Tehran’s demand for concrete guarantees for the removal of sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
He also said any sanctions removal must be verifiable, adding that Tehran is fully ready for serious interaction and advancement of talks.
Bagheri has stressed reaching a deal in Vienna by the end of next January depends on the serious will and readiness of the other side on the removal of the anti-Tehran sanctions.
