TEHRAN (Tasnim) – At the conclusion of the sixth round of talks about the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in Vienna, the JCPOA Joint Commission is going to hold a plenary meeting on Sunday with the participation of the delegations from Iran and the other member states.
The JCPOA Joint Commission will hold a meeting in Vienna’s Grand Hotel at 10 am GMT on Sunday.
The participants, including the representatives of Iran, China, Russia, France, the UK and Germany are going to review the consultations held in the sixth round of talks on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal over the past days.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi will be leading the Iranian delegation in the forthcoming meeting, which will be chaired by Deputy Secretary-General for Political Affairs of the European External Action Service Enrique Mora.
The participating delegations are scheduled to return to their respective capitals after the Joint Commission meeting for further consultations.
The most recent round of efforts to resuscitate the JCPOA began on April 6 to examine the US’ likely return to it.
Three working groups that focus on nuclear issues, the removal of sanctions, and the JCPOA implementation arrangements have held several meetings in Vienna in recent weeks.
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.
