The new round of talks between Iran and the P4+1 group will begin in Vienna before the end of 2021, and there is a good opportunity to revive Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Lavrov said in an interview with RT on Wednesday.
It comes after negotiators from Iran and the remaining parties to the JCPOA concluded the seventh round of talks in Vienna, aimed at bringing the US back into compliance with the agreement by removing its sanctions against Iran.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said Monday Washington has not presented any tangible text to the P4+1 while Tehran has put forth two documents that embody previous texts. He added that if the other sides come to the negotiating table with tangible proposals, an agreement will be reached in the shortest possible time.
Washington has threatened Tehran with considering “other options” if nuclear negotiations fail to restore the 2015 landmark agreement, three years after the US itself pulled out of the deal and imposed draconian sanctions on Iran.
Iran has made countless statements in over three years saying it will reverse its retaliatory steps once the US removes the illegal sanctions in a verifiable manner.
