Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif ruled out the possibility of any direct meeting with the US representatives at an upcoming meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission in Vienna.

Following the 18th meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission that was held via videoconference on Friday, the participants decided to proceed with the talks in Vienna next week to continue the consultations and define the measures relating to the termination of US sanctions.

In a post on his Twitter account on Friday night, Zarif confirmed that “Iran and EU/E3+2 agreed to resume in-person talks in Vienna next Tuesday.”

“Aim: Rapidly finalize sanction-lifting & nuclear measures for choreographed removal of all sanctions, followed by Iran ceasing remedial measures,” he added, stressing that there will be no meeting with the Americans in the upcoming session.

Zarif further underlined: “No Iran-US meeting. Unnecessary.”

In comments after the Friday’s videoconference, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said the Vienna meeting “will be attended only by the current parties to the JCPOA."
