Iran's Foreign Ministry: Disagreements in Iran nuclear talks are "numerous"

  Xinhua News Agency, Tehran, March 7 (Reporter Wang Shoubao and Gao Wencheng) Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Khatib Zad said on the 7th that in the negotiations between the parties involved in the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue, there are currently "a handful of differences" between Iran and Western countries. .

  Khatibzad said at a regular press conference that day that if the U.S. acted reasonably, the Iranian nuclear negotiation could quickly reach an agreement.

Iran does not accept a deadline for negotiations.

  Regarding the possibility of direct talks between Iran and the United States, Khatibzad said that Iran's decision is based on the behavior of the United States, not on vague information.

So far, Iran has not seen any change in the behavior of the United States, which has been exerting maximum pressure on the Iranian people.

  Khatibzad said the recent visit to Iran by IAEA Director General Grossi was carried out within a technical framework.

According to the joint statement, Iran will cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency to respond to questions raised by the agency.

There is a direct link between the resolution of these issues and a possible agreement in the Iran nuclear talks.

  In July 2015, Iran reached a nuclear deal with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.

In May 2018, the U.S. government unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal, and then restarted and added a series of sanctions against Iran.

Since May 2019, Iran has gradually suspended the implementation of some provisions of the Iran nuclear deal, but promised that the measures taken are "reversible".

  The parties involved in the Iran nuclear deal will start negotiations in Vienna, the capital of Austria, in April 2021 to discuss the resumption of compliance between the United States and Iran, and the United States indirectly participates in the negotiations.

The eighth round of negotiations was launched in Vienna on December 27, 2021.
