Iran PressIran news: Saeed Khatibzadeh, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran, today (Monday) in a weekly meeting with reporters, which was held online to comply with health protocols, while explaining the latest developments in the field of foreign policy answered reporters' questions.

He said about the telephone conversation between Amir-Abdollahian and Joseph Borrell: "This conversation was to congratulate Mr. Amir-Abdollahian on his appointment and Borrell expressed his interest in meeting with Amir-Abdollahian as soon as possible. The focus was on the Vienna talks. They must allow a democratic transition. Welcoming the continuation of diplomacy, Amir- Abdollahian stressed that what should be considered is the interests and rights of the Iranian people. The final date is subject to consultation between all parties."

"The Vienna talks are not about reaching a new text," he said. The Vienna talks are aimed at ensuring that the United States implements the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). If the United States returns to all of its obligations under JCPOA and Resolution 2231 in a verified manner, Iran will agree to have the United States sit in the JCPOA. These are technical talks that have been conducted in detail with the presence of some relevant parties in Vienna and will continue to be so, and the decision by the Foreign Ministry and other bodies will be announced in the coming days.

The spokesman in response to a question about the regional meeting in support of Iraq and why Iran did not participate in the presidential level, noted: "In each international meeting, the level and composition of the participation are decided by the countries based on the details of holding and preparation in the countries. As Iraq's neighbor, we announced that we will participate in any move and initiative that contributes to the peace, stability, and tranquility of Iraq. The previous visit of Ayatollah Raisi was very successful and the trip to Iraq will be done, God willing.
