Iran and the European Union have agreed to resume nuclear talks on 29 November in Vienna. In a statement, the EU’s European External Action Service said that the Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will convene in a “physical format” at the end of this month in Vienna. The statement added that the talks will be chaired by Enrique Mora on behalf of EU foreign policy chief Josip Borrell.
Separately, Deputy Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri, who is also Tehran’s lead negotiator, confirmed the date for the resumption of talks. Taking to Twitter, Bagheri said that the 29 November date had been set in a phone call with Mora. Meanwhile, according to The Times of Israel, the US, in reaction to the latest development, said that a deal is possible quickly if Iran is “serious” in the Vienna talks.
Vienna has been hosting talks aimed at reviving the Iran nuclear agreement since April. However, the negotiations have hit a deadlock as Iran has insisted that its nuclear steps are reversible if Washington lifts all sanctions. Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi even said that Tehran is after “goal-oriented” talks with the West and noted that his country “never left” the negotiation grounds.
