Delegation: Progress in Iran nuclear talks but the end of 'too far'



BERLIN  - High-level talks in Vienna aim to bring Iran back to a 2015 nuclear deal with the United States, which experts are working on this week's draft proposal, but Russia's envoy The solution is still very long.


Under President Donald Trump, who said the United States had unilaterally abandoned the deal by promising economic incentives to Iran in exchange for sanctions on its nuclear program in 2018, he said it would renegotiate. And disability needs to be curtailed.


In response, Iran has consistently violated the sanctions imposed by the agreement by enriching uranium on a regular basis and by stockpiling large quantities, thus exposing other countries involved in such a failed attempt. Failed. Forcing economic relief that will end this agreement. US sanctions.


US President Joe Biden wants to bring Washington back into the deal, and Iran has been in talks for the past two weeks with five other powers: Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia. Ambassadors of world powers are also holding talks in Vienna between the Iranian delegation and the US delegation, but not directly with the Iranian side.


The two expert groups are considering two key issues: resolving US sanctions on the one hand, and Iran's return to compliance on the other.


Now, Russian Ambassador Mikhail Ilyanov said, "We can note with satisfaction that negotiations (which) are entering the drafting stage."


"Practical solutions are still a long way off, but we are generally moving forward to agree on specific target measures," he wrote on Twitter.


Earlier on Saturday, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Argchi said Tehran had proposed a draft agreement that could be the basis for talks.


"We think the talks have reached a stage where the parties have succeeded in working on a joint draft," Aragchi told Iranian state television. "A new understanding seems to be taking shape, and now the final goals have been agreed upon.


"This path is well-known, but it will not be easy," Aragchi added. "That doesn't mean the differences are over."


Biden's national security adviser, Jack Sullivan, told Fox News on Sunday that the Vienna talks were "constructive" but would not elaborate further on the proposals.


"What I would say is that the United States will not lift sanctions unless we are clear and confident that Iran will fully return to its obligations under this agreement," he said.


"There has been some progress in the talks, but that does not mean resolving differences," Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzada was quoted as saying by the country's official IRNA news agency on Monday. "


"We believe that the US administration knows better than anyone that Iran's actions are within the scope of the nuclear deal and that they will be stopped when they lift US sanctions," he said.


The ultimate goal of the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, is to prevent Iran from building a nuclear bomb, which it insists it does not want to do. Iran now has enough enriched uranium to make bombs, but it was nowhere near that amount before the nuclear deal was signed.


The challenges are beyond that.


One attack is suspected to be Israel's recent attack on Iran's Natanz nuclear site, which caused unknown damage. Tehran has begun enriching small quantities of uranium to 60 percent purity, the highest level ever. International inspections can also be stopped without agreement.
