Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said his country will insist on lifting US sanctions of Iran and full resumption of the JCPOA.

Iran PressEurope: Sergey Lavrov, about Russia's stance on the upcoming Vienna Talks on November 29, said: "We will insist on implementation the agreements reached under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in 2015 and Liffting Iran's sanctions," TASS quoted Lavrov as saying.

"It means that the United States should resume the implementation of its commitments, including lift all the sanctions imposed in the context of the JCPOA," Lavrov stressed.

In the Paris 2+2 meeting between Russian and French defense and foreign ministers, Lavrov said that "We have prospects for more constructive cooperation."

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian wrote on Instagram on Friday: "The Islamic Republic of Iran does not intend to remain in the stalemates of the previous talks, and if the other side enters Vienna with a serious and positive approach, reaching a good agreement in the short term is possible."

Iran's position on the JCPOA is relatively straightforward and explicit. It shows that Iran is not looking for new negotiations, but what is essential in the current situation is to build trust in how the other side will return to the agreements specified in the 2015 deal.
