Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov discussed resuming the “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” known as the Iran nuclear deal during a phone call with his US counterpart Antony Blinken.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website that the talks took place today, Wednesday at the initiative of the US side.
“The two sides exchanged views on the possibility of resuming the full implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action to resolve the issue of Iran’s nuclear program,” the statement said.
According to the same source, the two sides also discussed several bilateral issues on the agenda.
The phone call came ahead of a meeting held by the Russian foreign minister with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdullahiyan earlier today in the Russian capital Moscow.
Last June, talks with the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China, Russia and Germany to resume the nuclear deal signed by Tehran in 2015. However, Washington announced its withdrawal from the agreement in 2018.
The Iranian nuclear deal made it possible to lift a number of international sanctions – particularly economic sanctions – against Iran in exchange for restricting the activities of its nuclear program and ensuring its peaceful use.
