The Deputy Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran announced on Tuesday evening that the meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission in Vienna has been postponed by one day.

Iran PressEurope: Seyed Abbas Araghchi referring to the previous schedule of the Iran-P4 + 1 meeting that was to be held on Wednesday in Vienna, said that the meeting would be held on Thursday due to the infection of one of the members with the coronavirus.

"Mikhail Ulyanov, Russia's permanent representative to the Vienna-based international organizations, also tweeted that the meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission had been delayed by one day and would be held in person on April 15."

The Iranian negotiating team headed by Seyed Abbas Araghchi, the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, arrived in Vienna an hour ago to resume the talks of the JCPOA Joint Commission.

Meetings and consultations with the remaining members of JCPOA are scheduled to begin bilaterally and multilaterally today and continue in the coming days.

After holding a virtual meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission on April 2 with the presence of the delegations of Iran and the P5 + 1 and the representative of the European Union, the parties agreed to hold a face-to-face meeting on Tuesday, April 6 to continue the unfinished discussions.

The meeting took place yesterday, and the participating parties decided to set up two expert working groups on nuclear and sanctions and to present the results at Friday's meeting of the Joint Commission in Vienna.

Under Trump's administration, the US government unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA in defiance of international resolutions and imposed maximum pressure on Iran by imposing unprecedented sanctions, and even during the outbreak of the coronavirus, it prevented Iran from gaining access to its resources in other countries for the import of medicine and food.

Two years after the US withdrew from the JCPOA and the European parties delayed in fulfilling their obligations under the agreement, Iran began to take steps to reduce its obligations and announced that if all sanctions are lifted and the other parties fulfill their obligations, it reverses the compensatory measures.
