Vienna (IP) - A bilateral meeting between Iran's chief negotiator and European coordinator was held in Vienna.

Iran PressEurope: The eighth round of talks in Vienna, focusing on lifting oppressive and illegal sanctions against Iran, began on December 27, 2021.

A meeting will also be held between Ali Bagheri, Iran's chief negotiator, and the heads of delegations from the European Union and three European countries.

Negotiations in Vienna have progressed due to the initiatives of the Iranian negotiating team. Still, Joe Biden's reluctance to compensate for the former US administration's illegal actions and continue exerting maximum pressure has cast doubt on Washington's seriousness in returning to the JCPOA and has prolonged the negotiation process.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, as a responsible country, has repeatedly stated that, given that the United States has violated the JCPOA agreement, it is Washington that must return to the agreement by lifting sanctions. The implementation of US commitments needs to be verified.
