Q: Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi said that Israel is accelerating its operational preparations for a possible strike against Iranian nuclear facilities. Do such statements complicate your efforts to reach an agreement in Vienna?
A: Iran says it is prepared to return to the Vienna negotiations, which it had suspended on June 20, on November 29. Deputy Minister Ali Bagheri Kani reaffirmed this intention during his consultations with the Political Director on November 9.
As the Minister reminded his counterpart during their conversation yesterday, our priority remains the swift conclusion of an agreement on Iran’s return to compliance with the JCPoA, and the United States’ return to the agreement.
