Tehran (IP) - Iran's negotiation team will travel to Vienna to resume the new round of talks over the revival of the US-scrapped Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran PressIran news: 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.
