New assessments show negotiators in Vienna really move ahead

Public assessments of the status of Vienna talks contain cautious positive elements which means that the negotiators really move ahead, Russia’s Permanent Representative to Vienna-based International Organizations noted.

“Indeed, we observe some progress on two tracks: at the negotiating table and in public assessments of the situation at the #ViennaTalks. Now for the first time since June, these assessments contain cautious positive elements. That means that the negotiators really move ahead”, Russia’s Permanent Representative to Vienna-based International Organizations tweeted.

Mikhail Ulyanov made the remarks in reply to a tweet by a Vienna-based journalist who said, “The State Dept Spox just told me that “there may have been some modest progress at the end of the seventh and beginning of the eighth rounds, but it is too soon to tell if we are making real progress toward an understanding on mutual return to full compliance with the JCPOA.”

Earlier on Thursday, the Iranian top negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani hailed the results of negotiations between Iran and the P4+1 group of countries including the UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany.
