Iran will not hold bilateral talks with the US delegation during the nuclear talks in Vienna, Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Monday.
During a press conference, the Iranian spokesman accused European countries of seeking to prolong the talks.
As the Iranian negotiating delegation enter the Vienna talks with a ‘serious will’, some European countries do not come to Vienna with strong will and are seeking to prolong the talks, Khatibzadeh said.
“What is important is that if the United States comes to Vienna with the determination to resolve the issues that were not resolved in the previous rounds, the talks will face an easier path. But if the United States continues its previous measures, Iran will definitely have several choices,” he added.
Answering a question about Iran’s plan to continue negotiations with the International Atomic Energy Agency, Khatibzadeh said that the agreed clauses are almost finalized and the delegation of the Islamic Republic will have meetings with the Agency in the coming days regarding the finalization of the text of the agreement.
“(IAEA Chief) Rafael Grossi’s visit to Iran was part of a technical exchange between Iran and the IAEA. There were good conversations at various levels, which left incomplete because we did not reach a definitive agreement on some words and concepts that were important to both,” he noted.
