Permanent Representative of Russia to International Organizations in Vienna says significant changes have been made in the US position on Iran's nuclear deal known as the Joint comprehensive plan of action (JCPOA).

Iran Press/Europe: "The US Department of State welcomed the virtual meeting of the Joint Commission of JCPOA with the participation of Iran and other parties to the nuclear deal. Another confirmation of significant changes in the US position which need now to be translated into practical actions," Mikhail Ulyanov tweeted.

Two years after the US withdrew from the JCPOA and the European parties delayed in fulfilling their obligations under the agreement, Iran began to take steps to reduce its obligations and announced that if all sanctions are lifted and the other parties fulfill their obligations, it reverses the measures. 

Also according to the agreement between Iran and the Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, Iran will no longer provide the (International Atomic Energy Agency), IAEA with camera footage installed at its facilities.

However, under the agreement, Iran has agreed to refuse to delete the films for three months and to provide the films to the IAEA if sanctions are lifted within three months. If sanctions are not lifted, Iran has threatened to delete the films.

Meanwhile, the European Union (EU) in a statement said that the next meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission at the level of deputies and political directors of Iran's foreign ministries and the P4 + 1 group would be held virtually on Friday.
