A member of the Iranian Shura Council, Ahmed Alireza Baiji, said on Sunday that it is scheduled to resume talks on his country's nuclear file in Brussels next Thursday with the five countries, which are still parties to the nuclear agreement signed in 2015.
"Talks with the 4+1 group will start Thursday in Brussels," Representative Baiji quoted Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian after a meeting in parliament as saying.
Another Iranian deputy confirmed the resumption of negotiations, which have been stalled since June, "this week".
"Everyone has received a clear and serious message. The government will start talks this week," MP Behrouz Mohebi Najmabadi said on his Twitter account.
These negotiations began in April in Vienna between Iran on the one hand, France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany on the other, and these countries are still members of the 2015 agreement on Iran's nuclear program.
As for the United States, which withdrew from the agreement in 2018, it indirectly participated in the Vienna negotiations aimed at saving the agreement.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian had confirmed that his country had informed Western countries that it was not evading the dialogue table, and that negotiations related to reviving the nuclear agreement would resume soon and at the appropriate time.
The Iranian officials' statements come in light of talks from European mediators and related parties about the imminent resumption of the stalled negotiations in Vienna, regarding returning to commitment to the contents of the nuclear agreement concluded between the major powers and Iran in 2015.Keywords: brussels, agreement, talks, countries, file, parties, mp, iranian, country, negotiations, shura council, member, behrouz mohebi najmabadi, deal, ahmed alireza baiji
