Vienna (IP) - An EU senior official minutes ago told the reporters present in Hotel Coburg in Vienna that an agreement text over the revival of the Iranian international nuclear agreement was finalized.

Iran PressEurope: "All of the delegations present in Vienna will leave the city tonight; we are waiting for the response of the foreign ministers of the countries involved in the Vienna negotiations," the EU official said.

He stressed that the text finalized could not be changed.

Iran's international nuclear agreement or the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was signed between the country and P5+1 countries (Russia, China, UK, Germany, France, and the US) in 2015, but the US scrapped it on May 18, 2018, re-imposing more sanctions on Iran.

The Vienna Talks were an initiative centered around the revival of the JCPOA and removing the sanctions on Iran, but the Western parties' refusal to fulfill their commitments to the international agreement procrastinated the negotiations.

"It is important to say that the negotiations wrapped up," the official added. 

The EU official's comments came as an official in Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs repudiated the finalization of any text, saying some other issues of discussion had yet remained.
