He said that European representatives had acknowledged in their remarks the fact that the main reason for the current situation was the US withdrawal.Therefore, Washington should be the first one to act to revive the agreement.

Bagheri Kani stated that the six previous rounds were discussed and that all parties agreed to the principle of “nothing is finalized until everything is agreed”.Therefore, any of the preliminary outcomes that were drafted between April-June could be reexamined.

After nearly six months of hiatus, Iran and the remaining participants to the 2015 nuclear agreement, with indirect US involvement, resumed talks Monday.
