Moscow is cautiously optimistic ahead of Monday's nuclear negotiations in Austria’s Vienna, a Russian top diplomat says.

“Count Russia out, please. We are fully aware of all the problems at the Vienna Talks but remain cautiously optimistic,” Russia’s Permanent Representative to the Vienna-based international organizations Mikhail Ulyanov wrote on his Twitter account.

“The reason for this cautious optimism is very simple: we have no reasonable and acceptable alternative to a successful conclusion of the talks on JCPOA,” he continued.

Tehran, Moscow and Beijing held useful informal consultations ahead of the beginning of the Vienna talks on the restoration of the Iran nuclear deal, Ulyanov had said.

“China, Iran and Russia held today trilateral informal consultations in preparation of the official resumption of the Vienna Talks on November 29,” he noted, adding, “The exchange of views was useful, first of all for better understanding of the updated negotiating position of Tehran.”

The seventh round of talk on the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program, which was suspended in June because of elections in Iran and the formation of its new government, will begin on November 29.
