(Reuters) – Diplomats from the great powers and the European Union met separately with Iran and the United States on Wednesday to discuss which sanctions Washington could lift and which nuclear restrictions Tehran could adhere to in order to bring both back into line with the nuclear deal Bringing in 2015, a US official said.
The long-standing enemies of the United States and Iran have stated that they do not expect any quick breakthroughs in the talks that began Tuesday in Vienna with European and other diplomats as mediators, as Tehran has refused to hold face-to-face talks for the time being.
Former US President Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 deal that lifted economic sanctions against Iran in exchange for restricting its nuclear program, and re-imposed US sanctions, leading Iran to lift the nuclear restrictions violate the agreement.
The remaining parties to the deal – Iran, Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia – agreed on Tuesday to form two expert groups whose job it is to marry lists of sanctions that the United States has with nuclear commitments that the United States has Iran should meet, could repeal.
Diplomats said the working groups, led by the European Union and excluding the United States, met on Wednesday. A US official said on condition of anonymity that the US delegation in Vienna had been informed of the discussions.
