The leaders of NATO member states on Monday backed talks on reviving the JCPOA in a statement, without mentioning US illegal withdrawal from the nuclear deal or European countries' failure in their commitment to the international agreement.

The leaders of 30 member states of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) issued a joint statement on Monday and supported the Vienna talks on the revival of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The statement, a copy of which was posted on NATO, says: "As NATO members, we support the important negotiations between the participants in the Comprehensive Joint Action Plan (JCPOA) on the one hand, and separately with the United States on the other, in order to pave the way for the return of the United States to JCPOA's commitments."

The administration of US President Joe Biden claims that it intends to pave the way for its country to return to the nuclear deal through ongoing talks in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

The 6th round of the Joint Commission meeting of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) started in Grand Hotel Wien in Vienna on Saturday in presence of delegations of Iran and P4+1 (Germany, France, Russia, China and UK).

Senior diplomats from JCPOA member states have gathered in Vienna over the past month to revive the agreement which the United States withdrew unilaterally during Donald Trump's presidency.

Iran fully complied with its obligations under the nuclear deal within a year of the US's illegal withdrawal from the JCPOA and gave European countries a chance to live up to their commitments.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has also stated that it will not accept any new conditions or demands for the return of the United States to the JCPOA.
