In Vienna on Thursday, August 4, the negotiation process on the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program may resume. Mikhail Ulyanov, permanent representative of Russia to international organizations in Vienna, announced this.

“It is possible that tomorrow a meeting of the joint commission on the JCPOA will take place and, accordingly, the Vienna negotiation process on the restoration of the nuclear deal will resume,” Mikhail Ulyanov stressed. His words reports RIA Novosti on Wednesday, August 3rd.

According to his information, the heads of all the delegations are going to arrive in Vienna on August 4th. Ulyanov added that in this case the meeting would be held at the level of political directors.

The conclusion of the JCPOA marked the end of the crisis that began in 2004, when the West began to suspect Iran of developing nuclear weapons. Because of this, sanctions were imposed on Tehran. According to the document that entered into force in 2015, Iran, in particular, in exchange for the removal of sanctions restrictions, pledged not to enrich uranium by more than 3.67% for 15 years and not to build additional heavy water reactors.
