Iran's negotiation team has arrived in the Austrian capital Vienna to resume talks with world powers over the country’s nuclear program.
Chief negotiator Ali Bagheri-Kani and his accompanying delegation will soon go to Palais Coburg to hold diplomatic consultations ahead of a meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission.
During the fresh round of talks that will kick off Monday afternoon, the sides are expected to discuss the contents of a new text and the possible roadmap for revival of the July 2015 nuclear deal.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Monday morning that this round of talks will focus on a new joint draft, adding, “Today we have an acceptable joint document on the table”.
He noted that the most important issue in the new document is achieving proper guaranties that Iran can sell its oil easily and without any restrictions as well as receiving the proceeds in foreign currency in Iranian banks.
In addition to US sanctions on Iran’s oil exports, there are also banking sanctions that have cut off most of Tehran’s financial ties with the world.
Bagheri-Kani said earlier that if the other sides accept the Islamic Republic’s demands, the eighth round could be the final round.
Many Iranian pundits have expressed doubt about the success of this round in achieving tangible results.
