“Indeed, we observe some progress on two tracks: at the negotiating table and in public assessments of the situation at the Vienna Talks. Now for the first time since June these assessments contain cautious positive elements,” Russia’s Permanent Envoy to International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanovm, wrote on Twitter Friday.
“That means that the negotiators really move ahead,” the Russian negotiator in Vienna talks added.
“I wholeheartedly wish all participants in the Vienna Talks and all supporters of the nuclear deal throughout the world to see the JCPOA fully restored early next year! It would bring sanctions lifting, reduced tension in the region and strengthened nuclear non- proliferation,” he continued.
Vienna talks focused on lifting sanctions will continue on Monday (January 3, 2022) after a short recess due to the New Year’s holidays.
Iran’s chief negotiator to the Vienna negotiations stated good progress has been made regarding anti-Tehran sanctions removal during negotiations with the P4+1 group over the past days.
The main focus of the eighth round of talks has been on lifting sanctions, Ali Bagheri Kani noted on Thursday afternoon as delegations prepared to go back to their countries for a New Year break before they return to the Austria’s capital.
