Iran - Q&A from the press briefing (29 June 2021)


Q: Do you think that the conditions have been met and that the political will on the part of Iran is there in order to resume the nuclear negotiations in Vienna?

A: As the minister reaffirmed following his meeting with Antony Blinken on Friday, the discussions have already resulted in considerable progress, notably with respect to the nuclear component. However, we still need to overcome technical difficulties and significant political obstacles in order to reach an agreement. Courageous and strong decisions must be made because we are coming to the most sensitive issues. We believe that these negotiations must quickly resume.

Together with its E3 partners, France remains fully committed to these negotiations, with the aim of reaching an agreement that is entirely satisfactory.
