Tehran (IP) - The Spokesman of Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said European Union nuclear coordinator Enrique Mora's recent trip to Tehran was followed by special initiatives proposed by Iran to revive the JCPOA.

Iran PressIran news: The eighth round of talks on removing sanctions, which began on December 27, 2021, entered a breathtaking phase on March 11, 2022, at the suggestion of EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell, and the negotiators returned to their capitals for political consultations.

Since then, the parties have spoken of progress in the negotiations and the reduction of disputes, but the issue of guarantees and the removal of natural and legal persons from the red list and from the set of sanctions, are also among the cases in which the United States, as a violator of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), has not made the necessary political decision to resolve them.

In his weekly press conference on Monday, Saeed Khatibzadeh talked about the status quo of the Vienna talks about the so-called JCPOA and said in case the US decided to reach a deal, Iran would return to Vienna. 

Khatibzadeh then pointed to the Israeli regime's movement in this regard and told the reporters that whenever an initiative was proposed to make progress in diplomacy, the regime began to act against the diplomacy. 

He said Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his counterpart in the EU Josep Borrell agreed to have in-person meetings, so Mora came to Iran and had constructive talks with the country's top negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani. 

Iran's top negotiator in Vienna Talks says the Islamic Republic is serious about the revival of the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) but does not fully trust the Western parties.
