Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araghchi stressed that significant progress has been made in previous rounds of Vienna talks but serious issues still remained in the talks that need to be resolved.

Referring to the 5th round of the JPCOA Joint Commission Meeting on Tuesday in Vienna, Araghchi said, "All sides are still serious and they have attended the meeting seriously. Many delegations hope that this round can be the last round of negotiations and we can reach a conclusion".

"Serious issues still remained in Vienna talks that need to be resolved. Of course, the number of these issues has decreased, and we have made progress in writing the draft in previous periods. We can move forward further, but the few issues that remain are still key issues that need to be decided," he added.

Stating that it can't be said conclusively about the exact time of the end of the negotiations, Araghchi noted, "We hope to be able to do this as soon as possible, but we are looking for an agreement that meets our definite demands and positions that have been repeatedly mentioned before".
