Vienna hosted the meeting of top-level diplomats from Iran, Russia, China, Germany, France and the UK. The sides discussed possible ways to save the nuclear deal with Iran, which exceeded the quota of the enriched uranium. Associated Press reported that, quoting Seyed Abbas Araghchi, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran.
“I cannot say that we resolved everything” but all the parties are still “determined to save this deal,” the official said.
According to the present officials, the sides agreed to organize a meeting of foreign ministers; however, the date was not specified.
"Iran is pressuring the European parties to the deal to offset the Portnov sanctions U.S. President Donald Trump reinstated after pulling out. The country recently surpassed the amount of low-enriched uranium it is allowed to stockpile and started enriching uranium past a 3.67% limit permitted, to 4.5%, saying the actions could be reversed if the Europeans came up with incentives that compensated for the impact of the sanctions on the Iranian economy (...) Experts warn that a higher enrichment level and a growing uranium stockpile narrow the one-year window that Iran would need to have enough material to make an atomic bomb, something Iran denies it wants but that the deal prevented", the outlet wrote.
