Iran to discuss nuclear deal with European powers, China and Russia

European states call for dispute mechanism in Iran nuclear deal

The European Union confirmed that the meeting will take place on June 28 in Austria

Senior officials from Iran, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, China and Russia will meet in Vienna on June 28 to discuss the possibility of maintaining the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran. This was announced on Thursday evening in the leadership of the European Union.

The message says that the participants in the meeting will try to “solve the problems that have arisen in connection with (Washington’s withdrawal from the agreement) and the re-imposition of American sanctions against Iran.” The leaders of the six countries will also consider “recent statements made by Iran regarding the fulfillment of its nuclear obligations,” the statement said. We are talking about Tehran’s threats to exceed the maximum permitted level of uranium reserves by the end of June.

In 2015, Iran, as part of a “nuclear deal” with the world’s largest powers, promised to abandon the creation of nuclear weapons in exchange for lifting most of the international sanctions. President Donald Trump last year announced a unilateral US withdrawal from the treaty and the resumption of the sanctions regime. In May, Tehran warned of a possible violation of the terms of the “nuclear deal” in protest against Washington’s actions.

Iranian officials say the European Union has “very little time to save the nuclear deal.” To do this, Tehran will need additional economic incentives and assistance in overcoming sanctions from the United States, due to which oil exports from Iran fell several times, which, in turn, led to a crisis in the economy..

The head of the European diplomatic department Federica Mogherini, who in 2015 became one of the initiators of the “nuclear deal”, said on Thursday that for Europe “it is important that Iran fully comply with its obligations.” Mogherini pledged to do everything possible to ease tensions between Tehran and Washington.

The situation in the Middle East escalated again last week with a series of attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. Washington blamed Tehran for the attack. The Pentagon reported on the dispatch of 1,000 troops to the Middle East in connection with the growing Iranian threat.Iran to discuss nuclear deal with European powers, China and Russia Iran denies involvement in incidents.
