The meeting of the Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will be held later today (Saturday) in Vienna with the presence of the representatives of Iran and the P4 + 1 (Germany, France, Russia, China, and Britain) at the level of the heads of the delegations.
The meeting is aimed to review and summarize the results of the work of the three expert groups on nuclear, sanctions, and executive arrangements.
In recent days, working groups and delegations have held intensive meetings to discuss and review the texts.
The White House national security adviser said the Vienna talks were a serious way to discuss the details of lifting Iran's sanctions and nuclear restrictions.
Indirect negotiations in Vienna on a return to compliance by the United States and Iran to the Iran nuclear deal are in “an unclear place,” US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Friday.
“I’m not going to characterize the substance of the negotiations at this point because they are in . . . an unclear place,” Sullivan told an Aspen Security Forum webinar. “We’ve seen the willingness of all sides, including the Iranians, to talk seriously about sanctions relief and a pathway back into the JCPOA.”
“But it is still uncertain if this will culminate in a deal in Vienna,” he said.
