  • No talk of good, lasting agreement unless all issues agreed upon: Amir-Abdollahian

Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says no party can definitely talk about conclusion of a good and lasting agreement on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal in the Austrian capital of Vienna unless all issues have been worked out.

According to Press TV, he made the remarks in a telephone conversation with his Omani counterpart Sayyid Badr al-Busaidi on Thursday afternoon.

The top diplomat hailed Oman's constructive role during the course of Vienna talks on the revival of the landmark accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and removal of sanctions against Tehran.

Amir-Abdollahian also pointed to Iran's goodwill and seriousness in reaching a favorable and lasting agreement, and said, “After receiving US comments and opinions, we would enter a new stage in Vienna [talks] if Iran's economic benefits from the agreement are secured and our red lines are observed.”

“We cannot talk with certainty about reaching a good and lasting agreement unless everything is agreed upon,” the Foreign Minister pointed out.

Busaidi, for his part, hoped that all parties involved in the Vienna talks will cooperate towards reaching a satisfactory outcome in the negotiations.
