TEHRAN, Iran — Iran told Russia Saturday that Western governments should be “realistic” when nuclear talks resume later this month and not exceed the bounds of a 2015 deal they are seeking to revive. A telephone call between Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, which Moscow said was requested by Tehran, came just weeks before the talks reopen in Vienna on November 29 after a five-month gap.

“The rapid approach of the talks requires the European and American sides to adopt a constructive and realistic approach, avoiding excessive demands that go beyond the terms of the nuclear agreement” struck in 2015, the Iranian minister said, according to a ministry transcript. The Russian foreign ministry said the two “sides spoke in favor of restoring the nuclear deal in its original, balanced configuration, approved by the UN Security Council.”

“They confirmed that this is the only correct way to ensure the rights and interests of all participants of the comprehensive agreements.”
