Iran’s top nuclear negotiator meets with Enrique Mora & European troika

Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani on Thursday met and held talks with the European Union representative in the Vienna talks Enrique Mora and the European troika (representatives of the three parties to the JCPOA) in diplomatic Vienna talks.

The Vienna talks between Iran and the P4+1 is ongoing, but teams will go to a three-day New Year break as of Thursday and will resume talks on January 3.

Delegations from Iran and the P4+1, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the UK, returned to Vienna, Austria, on Monday after a Christmas recess.

EU foreign policy chief Enrique Mora who co-chaired the JCPOA Joint Commission meeting on Monday evening told reporters that the upcoming break was only due to Palais Coburg’s suspension of services.

The ongoing round of talks – the eighth round – was originally set to be held after the New Year holiday, but the teams decided to reconvene between the two holidays as an indication of seriousness.
