Foreign Minister Amirabdollahian asserted that the E3’s position in JCPOA negotiations “were in general not constructive… they did not put forward any new initiative in the talks”. “We will pursue our serious negotiations in Vienna with goodwill and seriousness and with an eye on achieving a good agreement”, he added. “if they [P4+1 and U.S.] want to give one concession and get ten concessions [in return], the Islamic Republic of Iran will never accept such an approach… if you want your concerns about Iran’s peaceful nuclear to be dispelled, all sanctions imposed in relation with the JCPOA must be removed”. Amirabdollahian also noted that there had been “unwritten messages” from the U.S. during the talks, met with “suitable responses”.
