“There are still few but very important issues in the Vienna talks. We always stated that we will not cross our red lines about the Vienna talks in any way,” he added.

Under no circumstances, the negotiating team will cross the red lines of the Islamic Republic of Iran about the talks and we will show our strong commitment to this issue,” the Iranian top diplomat noted.
