Tough talks ahead for Iran nuclear deal

Tough talks ahead for Iran nuclear deal, Middle East Monitor, December 12, 2021    Long-awaited talks on the Iran nuclear deal which resumed last week in Vienna after a five-month hiatus may end up in reconciliation, according to one political analyst, Anadolu Agency reported.

“Neither Iran nor the P4+1 countries – Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany – wants the deal to collapse.

“The cessation of negotiations and an escalation in the military tension would not be a scenario preferred by either side,” he said.

It would not be a good option for Iran, as its economy has tumbled in recent years into a recession under US sanctions, he pointed out.

On Nov. 29, in Vienna, Iran and world powers kicked off talks in a last-ditch attempt to restore the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – the deal’s formal name – after talks stalled following a government change in Iran this June.

The latest round of talks ended last week without any significant breakthrough.

During the negotiations, Iran submitted two draft proposals to the Europeans, one on lifting sanctions and another on nuclear commitments.

“We saw harsh reactions by the EU and US against the proposals, accusing Iran of expecting too much,” said Uygur.

The new Iranian delegation, under a new government, took a tougher stance than its predecessor, provoking a backlash from the US, which accused Tehran of not being serious………….

After the meeting, Enrique Mora, the top EU representative and coordinator of the talks, said the parties will continue talks “until an agreement is reached.”….
