New York (IP) - Iran's top negotiator, Ali Bagheri Kani, met and held talks with European Union and the Netherlands envoys on the latest development on the nuclear deal.

Iran PressAmerica: Bagheri Kani emphasized on the sidelines of the 77 UN General Assembly in New York on Thursday that Iran is determined to pursue sustainable obligations and abide by commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The Iranian nuclear negotiator also held meetings with officials from Qatar and Switzerland, underlining that Iran urges the Western parties signatories to the deal to comply with their commitments.

He also met with Josep Borrell, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, in New York, where they discussed lifting anti-Iran sanctions.

The Iranian diplomatic delegation emphasizes that the prerequisite to any agreement in the Vienna talks is that the West should abide by its commitments regarding removing anti-Iran sanctions, and the sanction policy should not be used as leverage to put pressure on Tehran in the future.

Iran and the P4+1 group (Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany) have held several meetings in Vienna to revive the JCPOA and lift anti-Iran sanctions, which needs the United States' political decision to bear fruit.
