JCPOA talks likely to resume on Thursday - Le Drian

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian stated on Tuesday that he expects the negotiations about the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to continue on Thursday.

Le Drian said that he remains optimistic despite the fact the talks made no progress last week and that the deal could be reached before escalating into a "serious situation." He admitted, though, that the circumstances are "not very encouraging because we have the feeling the Iranians want to make it last and the longer the talks last, the more they go back on their commitments [...] to get a nuclear weapon."

The United States previously accused Iran of not working to solve the crisis. Later, Germany said that Tehran's proposals for the solution violate the initial deal.
