Russia’s Envoy Foresees Showdown in JCPOA Talks

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The permanent representative of Russia to the international organizations in Vienna predicted that the current and fifth round of talks for the revival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal would be the final round of negotiations.

“The fifth round of the Vienna talks on JCPOA is under way. As of now, there are no plans for the sixth,” Mikhail Ulyanov said in a post on his Twitter account on Sunday.

“The negotiators proceed from the understanding that the current round should be final,” the Russian ambassador noted.

The most recent round of JCPOA negotiations that began on April 6 examines the potential of revitalization of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the US’ likely return to it.

The US left the JCPOA in 2018 and restored the economic sanctions that the accord had lifted. Tehran retaliated with remedial nuclear measures that it is entitled to take under the JCPOA’s Paragraph 36.
