Tehran (ISNA) - "If the other side of Vienna talks accepts the rational views and positions of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the new round of talks can be the last one and we can achieve a deal in the shortest possible time," Iran's chief negotiator, Ali Bagheri announced.

"The pace of reaching agreements depends on the other side," he stressed.

At the end of this round of talks in Vienna between Iran and the P4+1 group aimed at removing the US sanctions imposed on Tehran and saving the JCPOA, Bagheri told reporters, "During the last week negotiations, we reached two new documents for talks both on the issue of sanctions and on the nuclear issue".

He stressed that a fresh round of Vienna talks would start in the near future based on these new documents which incorporate Iran's viewpoints and positions.

"Given the formation of a new administration in Iran, the country's new negotiating team had brought along its own stance and views to Vienna. The new Iranian negotiating team took into account the positions, views, amendments and proposals put forwards by the former Iranian colleagues during the previous six rounds of talks in Vienna as well as the drafts that had been prepared up to that time and incorporated them in the negotiation documents that we presented to the other side," he added.
