Iran affirms JCPOA revival negotiations would take place in Persian Gulf nation
(MENAFN) Following reports by Qatar's Al Jazeera network and Iran's Nour News that the interested parties may fly to Doha to restart the discussions; Tehran has announced that the next round of stalled negotiations to revive the ailing 2015 Iran deal will be hosted by a Persian Gulf nation.
Iran's departing Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Saeed Khatibzadeh, told a press conference on Monday that the sides will decide on the next site and date of the talks within hours.
“Inshallah, one of the countries in the Persian Gulf will be the host, and the meeting will take place in the coming days of the current week,” Khatibzadeh informed journalists.
The negotiations began in April of last year but have already been put on hold for two months. All prior rounds have taken place in Vienna, Austria's capital.
On the agenda is the full implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), often known as the Iran agreement, which the US abandoned in 2018 and has been attempting to kill since then.
By exiting the JCPOA, former US President Donald Trump launched a "maximum pressure" sanctions campaign to bring Iran to its knees. Tehran asks that all sanctions be lifted.
