As soon as all of Tehran’s “red lines” are considered, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stated that he is ready to travel to Vienna to finalize an agreement on restoring the country’s 2015 nuclear deal
The statement comes as the Iranian foreign minister and Josep Borrell, the European Union’s foreign policy chief and coordinator of the negotiations in the Austrian capital, held a phone talk.
Amir-Abdollahian also told Borrell that Iran was ready to conclude the 11-month talks, but “haste” on the side of the Western parties could not undermine Iranian demands, the Iranian foreign ministry said in a statement.
Amir-Abdollahian was further quoted saying: “The requirement for the presence of foreign ministers in Vienna and announcing a final agreement is contingent on fully observing Iran’s declared red lines, including effective economic guarantees.”
The talks to restore the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the deal is formally known, are on the path to their conclusion and most of Iran’s demands have been met, Borrell stated for his part.
