“If Americans act within the framework of honesty, we will achieve results in a short time.”

The US and Iran could reach an agreement to return to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal soon, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday, following another round of indirect talks between the countries. “The talks in Vienna have progressed by about 60 to 70%,” Rouhani said. “If Americans act within the framework of honesty, we will achieve results in a short time.” Rouhani’s comments came a day after Russia’s Ambassador to International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov tweeted that the negotiations “entered the drafting stage.” However, Western parties to the Iran deal see mid-May, shortly before the end of Iran’s threatened May 21 deadline to end cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, as its target date to reach an agreement. Iranian diplomat Abbas Araghchi said on Tuesday that his delegation will pull out of negotiations if there are “excessive demands and time wasting.” The talks between the US and Iran, facilitated by the European parties to the deal – the UK, France and Germany – are meant to bring both countries back to compliance with the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which limits Iran’s ability to enrich uranium, while gradually lifting sanctions.
