Xinhua News Agency, Tehran, November 23 (Reporter Gao Wencheng) Iranian Foreign Minister Abdullahiyan said on the 23rd that Iran and the United States mainly have differences on three issues in the negotiations on the resumption of the implementation of the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue.
Abdullahiyan said at a press conference held by the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the same day that the first difference lies in resolving the remaining issues between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency; Confidence in investing in Iran; the third difference lies in the requirement that Western countries cannot extend sanctions to third parties.
He said the European side was mediating those differences between Iran and the United States. Iran and the United States are still exchanging information through an intermediary party, but the indirect messages passed by the United States have repeated neutral positions, which has deepened Iran's distrust of the United States.
In July 2015, Iran reached a nuclear agreement with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany. In May 2018, the United States unilaterally withdrew from the agreement, and then restarted and added a series of sanctions against Iran. Since May 2019, Iran has gradually suspended the implementation of some terms of the agreement, but promised that the measures taken are "reversible". Starting from April 2021, relevant parties to the Iran nuclear agreement will hold several rounds of talks in Vienna, the capital of Austria, to discuss the issue of the United States and Iran resuming their compliance with the agreement, with the United States indirectly participating in the negotiations.
