Iran’s top negotiator: Other side hasn’t offered constructive proposals in Vienna talks
Iran’s chief negotiator in the Vienna talks on the removal of illegal sanctions says Tehran has not received any constructive initiative or proposal from the opposite side during the ongoing negotiations in the Austrian capital.
Ali Bagheri Kani made the remarks in an exclusive interview with Press TV’s correspondent in Vienna on Sunday, saying that the removal of the illegal and cruel US sanctions and Iran’s nuclear activities are two main sticking points in the current talks over which there still remains a host of differences between the two sides.
The Iranian diplomat added that despite this situation, Iran’s delegation has informed the opposite side of its views on differential points through modifications and proposals that it has offered the opposite party.
“When it comes to these points of difference, we have so far received no proposal and initiative from the opposite side,” Bagheri Kani said.
Iran’s lead negotiator further stated that the removal of the illegal and cruel US sanctions and Iran’s nuclear measures are the most important bones of contention between the two sides during Vienna talks over which many differences still remain unresolved.
“...these differences are clearly visible in the final draft that was achieved following the sixth round of talks in Vienna… The differences, especially on the nuclear issue, are numerous and varied.”
