Is JCPOA returning to 2015 norms?
The parties to the negotiation process on the nuclear deal in Vienna agreed to exclude some names and organizations from the sanctions lists, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Aragchi said.
At the same time, the deputy head of the Iranian foreign ministry noted that not everything has been excluded from the sanctions lists, "discussions on this issue are still ongoing. There was an agreement to exclude the names of many individuals and organizations from the sanctions lists, but there are others who are still on these lists for various reasons," the official said.
In turn, Russia's permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, commenting on the interim results of the activities of the Joint Commission on the Iranian nuclear deal, noted progress in the negotiation process, and also indicated that there are grounds for confident optimism. "The Joint Commission on the JCPOA has summed up the interim results of the negotiations in Vienna. There has been steady progress, although many unresolved issues remain. The Commission will meet again on May 7," he wrote on Twitter.
Ulyanov also drew attention to the fact that "the parties have a common disposition to strive for a successful completion of the negotiations in three weeks."
Earlier it was reported that yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed hope that everything related to the JCPOA on the Iranian nuclear program will be restored to the previous framework and volumes.
