FM says Iran to send nuclear delegation to Vienna in days

The joint press conference came after the two top diplomats of Iran and Syria Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Faisal Mekdad’s held a meeting earlier today.

Referring to his bilateral meeting with his Syrian counterpart, Iranian Foreign Minisyer Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stated in the joint press conference that, “We had various conversations regarding the pursuit of bilateral relations, especially regarding economic, commercial, and tourism cooperation. Compared to the last year, the volume of trade between the two countries has increased significantly.”

Saying that Iran shares common positions with Syria regarding regional and international issues, Iran’s top diplomat said that the joint economic commission of the two countries is scheduled to be held in Tehran in near future with the participation of the Syrian prime minister and the Iranian First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber.

“We will send a delegation from Iran to Vienna in the coming days to start talks and strengthen cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency,” Iran’s top diplomat said elsewhere in his remarks with reference to the talks on the removal of anti-Iran sanctions.

“There is a consensus between Mr. Eslami (Iran’s atomic agency chief) and Grossi (IAEA chief), and we hope that the agency will be able to pass this stage of technical cooperation by focusing on the technical viewpoints based on what we have agreed on in the past days,” the foreign minister said.

He also expressed hope that the anti-Iranian accusations would be resolved if the Agency focuses on the technical issues.

Amir-Abdollahian also highlighted the US’s double standards and hypocritical behavior towards Iran, saying that the US keeps sending messages to Iran despite announced claims.

“The exchange of messages is ongoing through the EU coordinator,” he pointed out.

Amir-Abdollahian added that he will have a phone call with the EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell within minutes to discuss the latest coordination on the resumption of the Vienna talks.
