Iran’s uranium enrichment not conductive to talks - Biden
Iran’s decision to start enriching uranium to 60% is not conductive to talks about the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, US President Joe Biden said on Friday, TASS reports.
"We do not support and do not think it’s at all helpful that Iran is saying it’s going to move to enrich to 60% It is contrary to the agreement," Biden said at a joint news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.
Commenting on nuclear deal consultations that the five negotiators (Germany, France, the United Kingdom, China and Russia) are conducting with Iran in Vienna, the US leader said: "I think it’s premature to make a judgement as to what the outcome will be, but we’re still talking."
So far, the US delegation has held meetings with all participants of the negotiation process, except Iran.
