A New Meeting On Iran’s Nuclear Deal Will Take Place on July 28

A new special meeting to try to save the Iran nuclear deal will take place in Vienna on July 28, the Foreign Ministry told Tehran on Tuesday (July 23rd) in a statement.The states parties to the agreement (Germany, China, France, Great Britain and Russia) will meet at the level of the deputy ministers and political directors, says the ministry.

This extraordinary Meeting of the Joint Commission of the Iranian Nuclear Agreement concluded in Vienna in July 2015 will take place one month to the day after a meeting of the parties in the Austrian capital. At the end of this meeting, Iran had noted “some progress” to help it overcome the effect of the reinstatement of US sanctions, but found them “insufficient.”

Since then, tensions have become even more pronounced in the Gulf region.

Broken Talks Between Washington and Tehran

The Vienna agreement has been threatened since the US decided in May 2018 to withdraw from it and reinstate sanctions against Iran, to which they now apply a policy of “maximum pressure” for compelling him to negotiate an agreement that US President Donald Trump wants.

Accusing Washington of violating international law by unilaterally leaving the agreement, Tehran refuses any negotiation with the United States “under the pressure” of the sanctions.

Through the Vienna Agreement, Tehran pledged never to acquire atomic weapons and agreed to curb its nuclear program in exchange for a reduction of international sanctions against the Islamic Republic plunged the Iranian economy into a violent recession and deprived Iran of the economic benefits it expected from this international pact.

Iran Calls For Guarantees

To remain a party to the agreement, Iran requires its partners, and primarily Europeans, to take effective measures to secure its interests. He demands that they help him to get around the US embargo, especially by allowing him to sell his oil abroad.

In response to the American decision to leave the agreement and to force the Europeans to take concrete measures, Iran, which is subject to a strict inspection regime, has begun to free itself from some of its commitments. Iran thus no longer meets the limit imposed by the agreement on its enriched uranium reserves (300 kg) as well as the ceiling preventing it from enriching uranium with a degree of purity greater than 3.67%.

Tehran threatens to take another step in its “reduction plan” of its commitments in early September if its demands are not met.
