Iran's newly-installed Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stated on Friday that his country will return to talks in Vienna regarding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA, the Iran nuclear deal) 'very soon', but without giving a concrete date for the resumption.

  • The European signatories of the deal (France, Germany, the UK) have jointly voiced their desire to see an immediate resumption of talks to get Iran back into compliance with the deal.
  • Talks have been on ice for three months since the Iranian presidential election and the transfer of power to new incumbent Ebrahim Raisi.
  • Amir-Abdollahian states that US President Joe Biden sent a "negative sign" by refusing to lift sanctions on Iran, but there is little-to-no prospect of this occurring without Iran coming back into compliance with the JCPoA.
