Foreign Minister Amirabdollahian told his Russian counterpart that “fast progress in talks is contingent upon the European troika and the U.S. adopting a realistic and constructive approach through avoiding demanding too much of Iran and making demands beyond the nuclear deal”. He added that “Iran takes into account the process and records of previous talks in Vienna… [and] will insist on its demands forcefully”. In a separate conversation with the Chinese foreign minister, Amirabdollahian asserted that “the U.S. cannot push ahead with its failed maximum pressure policy and economic terrorism and at the same time claim it wants talks and an agreement”.
