The Ambassador of China to the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) stressed that nuclear talks with Iran and the signatories of the nuclear agreement would "continue," and that all parties to the agreement signed in 2015 had agreed to accelerate work to resolve differences, including any United States sanctions that could be lifted.

"Talks will continue," Wong Kun added, "all parties have agreed to accelerate their pace in the coming days by engaging (in) more comprehensive work on lifting sanctions, as well as other related issues.


The Iranian Assistant Foreign Minister, Abbas Iraqji, announced a new understanding on the nuclear agreement and common ground between the parties to the agreement, noting that the Vienna negotiations had reached a point where a "common text" could be worked on.

"There is a new understanding emerging about the nuclear agreement, and there is common ground among the parties on the ultimate objective of the talks in Vienna." said Iraqi, in statements to Iranian official television on Saturday.

"There is progress in the negotiations on the restoration of the nuclear agreement, slow, but stable progress," Ulyanov explained in a tweet, noting that "negotiations are gradually deepening, there will be a formal meeting today (Saturday) of the Joint Committee on the Nuclear Agreement."

Talks on the Iranian nuclear dossier resumed in the Austrian capital, Vienna, last Thursday, but the attack on the Ntins facility and Tehran's decision to enrich uranium by up to 60% caused confusion in the new talks.

Iran has already raised the uranium enrichment level over the past months to 20%, and the usable nuclear material for a bomb must be as high as 90%.

A European diplomat told Agence France-Presse (AFP),  ran is putting pressure on everyone by approaching the 90% enrichment of uranium necessary for military use.

Berlin, Paris and London warned against escalation "by any country," and felt that Iran's declaration of 60% enrichment release was a "dangerous development. It goes against the constructive spirit "of the discussions, but Moscow prefers to see this as a reference to the need to move quickly.

In return, US President Joe Biden, Friday, called Iran's enrichment of uranium to a 60% purity "unhelpful," but added that he was pleased that Tehran was still holding indirect talks with Washington on the resumption of the two countries' commitment to the 2015 Iranian nuclear agreement.
