Iranian President Hassan Rouhani believes that an agreement is imminent in the nuclear row with the United States. “The agreement has already been signed de facto,” Rouhani said on Thursday. “There are very few details that remain to be discussed and clarified.” According to Rouhani, the lifting of major sanctions points, such as oil exports, central banks, shipping and insurance, has already been organized.
In this regard, the president said on Iranian state television that all the five signatories to the Vienna nuclear agreement are already in agreement. In Vienna, the five contracting partners, China, Germany, France, Great Britain and Russia, have been mediating between Iran and the United States for more than a month. They are looking for a way to get Washington back to the 2015 nuclear deal. Negotiations are underway over Iranian sanctions that the United States may want to lift again, and steps that Tehran will take in exchange for restricting its nuclear program again to prevent the building of nuclear weapons. Talks are due to resume next week.
Negotiator Mora is optimistic
Negotiator Enrique Mora expressed confidence in Vienna on Wednesday that there would be a “final agreement” soon. The Foreign Ministry in Tehran also spoke this week of an agreement on technical sanctions. These include the start of Iranian oil exports as the main source of income for the country and access to oil money in foreign banks. According to the Foreign Ministry, there are still differences in political sanctions against Iranian politicians, in particular the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
Iran has reiterated several times that it will immediately fulfill its obligations under the Vienna nuclear deal once Washington lifts the sanctions. This also includes expanding cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA / IAEA). Iran had tightly restricted this before the Vienna negotiations. Once the agreement is implemented according to the contract and the US sanctions are lifted, according to Tehran, UN inspectors will also be allowed access to Iran’s nuclear facilities again. (Abba)
