The European coordinator of the nuclear talks in Vienna, Enrique More, arrived yesterday (Tuesday) for a round of meetings in Tehran in an attempt to save the renewal of the nuclear agreement. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saad Khatibazda said that in the meantime a meeting had been scheduled for the European coordinator only with Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagri, who also serves as head of the negotiating team for talks. However, a teacher asked to meet with other Foreign and Foreign officials.
He said the visit points in a positive direction in the talks, but that does not mean it comes with a new message, and the controversy is not limited to removing the Revolutionary Guards from the list of terrorist organizations alone. European Foreign Minister Joseph Burrell said he was looking for a “compromise” that would allow some of the Revolutionary Guards to be removed from the list.
An Iranian official told Al-Jazeera: “We have agreed orally on more than 90% of the nuclear issues, but this has not reached a written agreement.” The senior official, whose name was not mentioned in the report, noted that there are six issues that are at the heart of the dispute with the US.
He acknowledged that the decision on Nuri was linked to the execution of Ahmadra Jalali, the Iranian-Swedish researcher held by Iran on suspicion of spying for Israel, and to providing Israeli services with details of scientists involved in developing the Iranian nuclear program.
A spokesman for the Iranian justice system said there would be no exchange between the “Israeli spy” with Swedish citizenship, whose execution was scheduled for May 21, and Hamid Nuri, who is on trial in Sweden for crimes against humanity – when he executed 5,000 prisoners during the Iran-Iraq war.
