The Iranian Foreign Ministry announced today, Monday, that there is no fixed date for the resumption of the Vienna nuclear talks.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh revealed in a press conference that the Iranian delegation did not conduct direct negotiations with the US side, but rather received some messages through Enrique Mora, the European coordinator for the negotiations.
He added that his country responded indirectly to the American messages.
Discuss issues, not solutions
These developments came a few days after an American official announced that negotiations with Iran had not yet reached the point of lifting sanctions, indicating that they were still discussing issues, not solutions.
The diplomat warned the Politco newspaper, on condition of anonymity, of the dangers of failed talks with Iran, which could lead to an arms race in the Middle East, noting that the Iranian regime is seeking to obtain carbon fibers to manufacture centrifuges.
He also revealed that the United States made a good offer to Iran in the last round of Vienna talks.
Iran agreed to the inspection and the agency is skeptical
It is noteworthy that the spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization in Iran had announced the start of the technical examination of the new surveillance cameras that will be installed in the Tissa nuclear complex in the city of Karaj, west of Tehran.
He explained that the new cameras will replace the old cameras of the International Atomic Energy Agency, which were damaged in late June, and Iran said that an act of sabotage accused Israel of being behind causing the cameras to stop working.
The Iranian regime also stipulated, according to the official media in Tehran, a number of conditions before agreeing to place the cameras, including a security assessment on the dimensions of the sabotage process that affected previous monitoring devices, as well as condemnation of sabotage operations by the International Atomic Energy Agency, in addition to conducting technical examinations. And security on cameras before installing them.
Despite the Iranian agreement and its conditions, the Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, expressed the organization’s doubts about the incomprehensible disappearance of some data from the previous cameras.
It is noteworthy that the Iranian refusal about the inspections was hindering the progress of the talks on the Iranian nuclear that resumed on November 29 in the Austrian capital Vienna between Iran, Russia, Germany, Britain, France and China.
