Vienna(IP)- The deputy secretary general of the European External Action Service and the coordinator of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action(JCPOA) negotiations said that he was optimistic about JCPOA revival negations and rejected the 72-hour deadline for the conclusion of the JCPOA negotiations.

Iran PressEurope: The second day of the Vienna negotiations ended with the meeting between Ali Bagheri Kani, Iran's chief negotiator, and Enrique Mora, deputy secretary general of the European External Action Service and the coordinator of the JCPOA negotiations, at the Coburg Hotel in Vienna.

Before this meeting, Enrique Mora talked with Mikhail Ulyanov, the representative of Russia in the JCPOA revival negotiations, and then on Friday night, he came outside the Coburg Hotel building in Vienna for a short break and in response to reporters' questions about the negotiation process, he said that he is optimistic about the JCPOA revival negotiations.

In response to the question that some sources have spoken of a 72-hour deadline for the conclusion of the JCPOA negotiations, the deputy in charge of the European Union's foreign policy stated that he saw this news in Bloomberg and he does not know who said this.

Some diplomats participating in the Vienna talks also said in an interview with the Iran press correspondent that they still do not know how long this round of negotiations will last.

On the other hand, some journalists predict that this round of negotiations will probably end on Sunday.

However, during the past two days, intensive talks between the Iranian team and the parties of the European Union, China and Russia were held on several occasions and bilaterally.

Several issues are apparently discussed in the talks, one of which is related to the economic benefits that Iran can get from the JCPOA.

Tehran believes this issue should be stable, so there is a need to provide guarantees in the field of Iran's economic cooperation with foreign parties.

Marandi, an adviser to Iran's nuclear-negotiating team, wrote on Twitter on Friday: "Progress has been made, but all other issues, including the provision of guarantees to Iran, are still on the table."

Another issue is related to safeguard issues between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency. In this context, "Behrouz Kamalvandi," the spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, is also present in Vienna.

"Mohammed Jamshidi," the Political Deputy of the Office of the President of Iran, wrote on Twitter that the President of Iran emphasized in the phone conversations with the Presidents of France, Russia, and China that only when the safeguard claims are settled and closed, the final agreement can be reached.

Therefore, it is expected that the decision of the negotiating parties to revive the JCPOA on various issues, including the two aforementioned issues, can determine the fate of this round of talks.

It should be noted that during the past two days, journalists used a small tent that was set up in front of the Coburg Hotel, where the JCPOA revival talks were held in Vienna, and reported the news about the JCPOA revival talks and the movement of the delegations to the media in the very hot and humid weather of Vienna.
