Amir-Abdollahian further assessed the role of Oman in important regional developments and praised the country's efforts to establish peace, stability and cooperation in the region, including Muscat's efforts on the issue of Yemen.

In this telephone call, the Omani Foreign Minister, Sayyid Badr Albusaidi, considered the approach of the new administration of the Islamic Republic of Iran in developing relations with the countries of the region important and stated that Oman is serious about following up on the agreements reached during the recent visit of the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Oman.

During the meeting, the two sides also discussed the latest status of the talks, focusing on the lifting of oppressive and illegal sanctions against Iran.

The Vienna talks have seen some progress due to the initiatives of the Iranian negotiating team, but the reluctance of the West, especially the Joe Biden administration, to compensate for the former US administration's illegal actions and the continuation of the maximum pressure campaign, has cast doubt on the country's seriousness to return the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the talks has been prolonged.

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