Vienna (IP) - The top Iranian negotiator in Vienna talks to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) says parties involved in the talks are closer to an agreement than ever before, but there were still main unresolved issues.

Iran PressEurope: "Iran had suffered numerous problems in the past years due to the US unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA," Abbas Araghchi, Iran's deputy foreign minister and head of the Iranian negotiating team in Vienna talks told Al Jazeera.

"If we reach a good agreement with the other parties, we will accept it, otherwise there will be no agreement with either the current or the next US government," Araghchi noted. 

He stressed that it must be ensured that what happened with the withdrawal of former US President Donald Trump administration from the nuclear deal will not be repeated.

Washington must compensate for what it has done in the past through negotiations, the diplomat noted.

On Sunday, 13 June 2021, the 6th round of the Joint Commission of the JCPOA kicked off.
