Tanzania (IP) - Iran is serious about remaining safeguard-related issues in the Vienna talks to remove the Iran sanctions and wants no accusations by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to remain, Iranian Foreign Ministers says.

Iran PressAfrica: The new round of negotiations centered around the lifting of US sanctions against Iran under the so-called international Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which started on August 4 in Vienna, ended on August 8.

Most of the countries participating in the Vienna talks want a faster conclusion of the negotiations, but reaching a final agreement is pending the political decisions of the United States regarding some remaining important and key issues.

Meeting with a group of Iranians living in Tanzanian on Thursday, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said: "Yesterday, we received the response of the American side to our written proposals through the EU's coordinator, and we are mulling on this issue, with some issues should have been emphasized more."

Amir-Abdollahian stressed that Iran did not let some of the Israeli-cooked baseless accusations by the IAEA remain and be repeated whenever they wanted.

"The American side must be serious so that we can get close to the final stage of the negotiations, and if our investigations come to a conclusion according to the expert investigation, the next step would the meeting of foreign ministers for more talks, " he said.

The initial nuclear deal signed in 2015 by Iran, the US, UK, France, and Germany – as well as Russia, China, and the EU – involved Tehran agreeing to certain restrictions on its nuclear industry in exchange for the easing of economic sanctions and other incentives.

In 2018, however, it was torpedoed by the US under then-President Donald Trump, who withdrew from the agreement unilaterally, saying it was fundamentally flawed.
