WASHINGTON, August 8. /TASS/. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian nuclear program will be restored if negotiators in Vienna agree to an EU plan for a return to the deal, Mikhail Ulyanov, a Russian envoy in Vienna, said on Monday.
"The EU Coordinator circulated ‘the final text’ of the draft decision on restoration of the JCPOA. The participants in the Vienna Talks now need to decide if the draft is acceptable for them. In case of no objection the nuclear deal will be restored," Ulyanov, Russia’s Permanent Representative to International Organizations in Vienna, said on Twitter.
Agence France-Presse earlier reported, citing a source, that the final text had been submitted to the negotiating teams.
JCPOA was signed in 2015 between Iran and the UN Security Council five permanent members and Germany. Former US President Donald Trump pulled out of the deal in 2018 while the current US President, Joe Biden, has signaled he is ready to resurrect the agreement. Russia, the UK, Germany, China, the US and France has been in talks with Iran to reinstate the deal since April 2021.
