The secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, asserted that the “Vienna talks have reached a stage where outcome can be announced without speculation and with certainty. The U.S. political decision to realise or refuse to accept the requirements of a credible and lasting deal based on the principles accepted in JCPOA can replace speculation”. Relatedly, Foreign Minister Amirabdollahian maintained that “If the American side and the three European countries are serious about returning to fulfilling their obligations under the JCPOA, a good agreement can be reached… We are in a hurry to reach a good agreement, but within the framework of rational negotiations and achieving the rights and interests of our people”.
