Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh put emphasis on the fact that the priority for the Iranian negotiating team will be to ensure the US unlawful and illegal sanctions against Iran will be lifted.
Khatibzadeh rejected any step-by-step negotitation and said “The ony focus of Vienna will be on the removal of the illegal sanctions.”
“JCPOA talks will continue on its right path If the other parties have joined the negotiations with goodwill instead of killing the time,” he added.
In a relevant remark on Monday and while speaking to reporters after Vienna talks, the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani, said the previous rounds of Vienna talks were only a “draft”.
Also, in a separate remark, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that any agreement achieved in Vienna talks should guarantee implementation of the other sides’ undertakings based on the nuclear deal.
Amir-Abdollahian also said that “We have entered the talks in good faith and with seriousness, in spite of all non-commitment and inaction form US and European countries.”
