Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov met with European External Action Service (EEAS) Deputy Secretary-General in Moscow on Friday to discuss the JCPOA.

Ian PressEurope: The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the two sides discussed the prospects of implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to resolve the situation regarding Iran's nuclear program.

Representatives of the JCPOA members and the European Union have been meeting in Vienna over the past few months to discuss reviving the agreement and the possible return of the United States to it.

The 6th round of the Joint Commission meeting of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) started in Grand Hotel Wien in Vienna on Saturday in presence of delegations of Iran and P4+1 (Germany, France, Russia, China and UK).

Senior diplomats from JCPOA member states have gathered in Vienna over the past month to revive the agreement which the United States withdrew unilaterally during Donald Trump's presidency. 

Iran fully complied with its obligations under the nuclear deal within a year of the US's illegal withdrawal from the JCPOA and gave European countries a chance to live up to their commitments.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has also stated that it will not accept any new conditions or demands for the return of the United States to the JCPOA. 219
