Iran meets Russia, China, EU ahead of JCPOA talks

The Iranian team led by Chief Negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani (pictured) met with its Russian, Chinese and European counterparts in Vienna ahead of next week's Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) talks.

"The Iranian team arrived on Saturday in Vienna and started meetings which continued on Sunday at an expert level with the heads of the Russian and Chinese negotiating teams, as well as the EU Coordinator Enrique Mora," Iranian diplomat Mohammadreza Ghaebi told the ISNA news agency.

Earlier, Russia's Permanent Representative to International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov expressed hope that the Vienna negotiations will be successful and will result in Tehran agreeing to return to the nuclear deal. Meanwhile, Iran insisted an agreement will only be possible if all parties agree to remove sanctions against the country.
