Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said that it cannot be said that Iran's nuclear negotiations have reached a dead end, because they were continuing through the exchange of messages.

Khatibzadeh added that his country will not provide any gift in the negotiations to Washington, and that it is demanding its rights as stipulated in the agreement.

"If the United States of America takes its decision and responds to the remaining points in the nuclear talks, then an agreement can be reached," he said.

Khatibzadeh considered that the visit of the European coordinator for nuclear talks, Enrique Mora, to Tehran is an important step in the right path and constructive consultations on outstanding issues, stressing that Tehran hopes that this visit will achieve a goal of moving forward with negotiations.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that the visit of the European coordinator for nuclear negotiations, Enrique Mora, to Tehran next Tuesday comes within the framework of continuing correspondence between Iran's top negotiators and the European Union.

He added in a press statement that experts from the Iranian and European sides will follow up in Tehran the previous talks, stressing that the nuclear negotiations are proceeding on their normal course and that this path is continuing, as he put it.

Qatari efforts

In a related context, the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said that the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, will visit Tehran soon, to discuss bilateral, regional and international issues.

Reuters reported on Sunday, quoting a source, that the Emir of Qatar will visit Iran, Germany, Britain and other European countries on a trip that begins this week, in which he is expected to discuss efforts to revive the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal and energy security in Europe.

The source added that the Emir of Qatar's trip also aims to push the parties to the Iranian nuclear deal to "a new common ground."

This comes after indirect talks between the United States and Iran to revive the agreement reached a dead end, due to Tehran's insistence on removing the Iranian Revolutionary Guard from the US list of foreign terrorist organizations.

Under the deal, Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

Washington withdrew from the agreement in 2018 and reimposed US sanctions, and Tehran responded by gradually violating the nuclear restrictions enshrined in the agreement.
