Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi, who leads Iran’s team of negotiators in the latest round of meetings to revive the 2015 nuclear deal in Vienna, said the talks appear to be on the right track.
However, he said it was “too soon to predict” the outcome of the negotiations.
After days of intensive talks, it appears that we are now on the right track. But difficult way to go.
Too soon to predict the result. Expert Groups continue their hard work of clarifying important questions.

Iran and the remaining parties to the nuclear deal -Russia, China, the UK, France and Germany- have convened on Saturday in a meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission in Vienna to weigh plans for the US’ return to the accord and the removal of the sanctions on Iran.
Speaking to reporters in Vienna following the meeting, Araqchi said: “It seems that a new understanding is being developed and there is now common ground among all (the sides) on the final goal.”
