“The US and Iran said that there has been progress in the indirect negotiations in Vienna for the sides to return to compliance with the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal. After weeks in which the US and E3 — France, Germany and United Kingdom — expressed doubts that Iran was taking the talks seriously, and even Russia lamented ‘maximalist demands’ by the Islamic Republic, State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said steps have been taken towards a restoration of the JCPOA. … Iran Chief Negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani said on Wednesday that the talks are moving forward. ‘The more serious the other side is in being prepared to lift sanctions and accept Iran’s mechanisms for lifting sanctions, especially on verification and guarantee issues, the sooner we can reach an agreement,’ Bagheri Kani stated.” (01/05/22)
