Iran, world powers to hold talks on nuclear deal in Vienna on Friday: Tehran


iran,jul 06:
The foreign ministers of Iran and five world powers still party to the 2015 nuclear deal will meet in Vienna on Friday for talks on the troubled accord, the state media in Tehran said.Iranian officials have said Iran is likely to withdraw from the deal if the European Union cannot compensate the economic loss Iran would face once the United State starts implementing fresh sanctions in August.Friday’s meeting will also involve Federica Mogherini, EU high representative for foreign affairs and security policy.
Under the deal struck between Iran and six major powers — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States — in Vienna in 2015, Tehran agreed to curb its nuclear activities in exchange for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.On May 8, President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the accord struck under his predecessor Barack Obama and pledged “the highest level of economic sanction” against Iran, calling it “the leading state sponsor of terror.”After the U.S. withdrawal, Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that if the European Union wants to save the deal, he is willing to give it a short window of opportunity so Iranian negotiators could gain “practical guarantees.
