Foreign Minister Amirabdollahian told his Russian counterpart that “good progress has been made so far, but despite the progress, some issues have not yet been resolved in Vienna [talks], which requires a political decision by the western side…Reaching an agreement in Vienna can expand the different fields of cooperation between the Islamic Republic of Iran and other countries, including its partners”. “We are against war and imposition of sanctions… Cooperation between the Islamic Republic of Iran and any country, including Russia, should not be affected by the atmosphere of sanctions”, he added. In turn, the Russian foreign minister asserted that “the revival of the JCPOA must provide for all participants to have equal rights in relation to the unhindered development of cooperation in all areas without any discrimination”.
