China News Service, April 8th, according to Reuters, on the 7th local time, diplomats of countries involved in the Iranian nuclear agreement met with Iran and the United States to discuss how to get the two sides to abide by the Iranian nuclear agreement.
Beginning on the 6th local time, the negotiations in Vienna were conducted by diplomats from Europe and other countries acting as intermediaries because Iran refused to negotiate face-to-face with the United States.
Iran and the countries involved in the Iran nuclear agreement other than the United States have agreed to form two expert-level teams, the purpose of which is to combine the sanctions that the United States may lift with Iran's nuclear obligations.
On the other hand, US officials stated that they have heard briefings on the meeting.
On the 7th local time, US State Department Spokesperson Price said that the US team in Vienna had already negotiated with countries related to the Iranian nuclear agreement, and these countries had also held meetings with the Iranian delegation.
Due to the indirect form of the talks, the mistrust between the United States and Iran, and the complexity of the issue, the talks will be difficult.
He also stated that the United States is willing to lift sanctions on Iran, including sanctions that are inconsistent with the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA, the Iran Nuclear Agreement) in order to return to the Iran nuclear agreement, but did not provide details.
In July 2015, Iran reached an Iran nuclear agreement with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.
According to the agreement, Iran promised to limit its nuclear program and the international community lifted sanctions against Iran.
In May 2018, the US government unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement, and subsequently restarted and added a series of sanctions against Iran.
Since May 2019, Iran has gradually suspended the implementation of certain provisions of the Iran nuclear agreement, but promised that the measures taken are "reversible."
