The European delegation announces the suspension of nuclear negotiations and calls for “political decisions”

The European Union delegation announced the suspension of negotiations taking place in Vienna with the aim of reviving the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, calling on the various parties concerned to take "political decisions."
"Participants are returning to their capitals for consultations and (received) instructions in preparation for their return next week," diplomat Enrique Mora wrote on Twitter. Political decisions must be made now.”
Negotiations began last April in Vienna and resumed at the end of November after a five-month hiatus.
The agreement signed between Iran on the one hand and Germany, China, the United States, France, Britain and Russia on the other hand provided for a significant easing of international sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic in return for curbing its nuclear program.
But the United States withdrew from the agreement in 2018 and re-imposed economic sanctions on Tehran, which responded by gradually abandoning its obligations under the agreement.
The arrival of Joe Biden to the White House allowed the revival of negotiations after his predecessor, Donald Trump, withdrew from him.
The Americans participate in the negotiations in an indirect way without meeting with the Iranians, while the European Union and the other parties play the role of mediator.
On Monday, Iran announced for the first time its readiness to negotiate directly with Washington, which has shown a similar readiness.
"I think we have a few weeks to see if we can return to respecting the agreement mutually," US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said in mid-January.
