Stating that there won’t be more talks on Iran nuclear issue, Bagheri Kani said that the main issue in upcoming Vienna talks will be the consequences of the US withdrawal from the JCPOA and its illegal sanctions on Iran.

“As you know, France will chair the European Union at the beginning of the new year for the first six months of 2022, and it can naturally play a transnational role,” he said, adding that in this regard, it is a great opportunity to develop the relations between Iran and France on one hand, as well as for France to be more active in regional interactions and the upcoming Vienna talks on the other hand.

Referring to French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian’s latest remarks on the revival of JCPOA talks, Bagheri Kani said that there won’t be more talks on Iran nuclear issue because it [Iran nuclear talks] has been solved within an agreement between Iran and P5+1 in 2015.

The main issue in upcoming Vienna talks will be the consequences of the US withdrawal from the JCPOA and its illegal sanctions on Iran, the Iranian diplomat noted.
