Iran, Russia envoys discuss resumption of talks in Vienna on nuclear deal

Senior diplomats from Iran and Russia have exchanged views about the resumption of talks in Vienna, Austria, on a potential revival of the 2015 nuclear deal, which was suspended amid a power transition in the Islamic Republic following the June presidential election.

In a post on his Twitter account on Tuesday, Russian Ambassador to international organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov said he met with his Iranian counterpart Kazem Gharibabadi.

He said the two sides discussed a restart of the talks on the revival of the Iran deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Action (JCPOA), which has been in crisis since the US’s unilateral withdrawal in May 2018, as well as issues on the agenda of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the body tasked with monitoring the technical aspects of the agreement’s implementation.
