Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stressed that Iran is ready to resume Vienna talks in coming days.

Speaking at a joint press conference with EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell in Tehran on Saturday, Amir-Abdollahian said, "The Vienna talks will be resumed soon and we hope that this time the American side will take realistic and fair steps toward negotiations".

"We held positive and comprehensive talks over the cooperation between Iran and the EU. In the field of foreign policy, we are seeking balanced relations and in this regard, the EU and European countries are so important. We are also looking for developing our relations with different European countries," he added.

"We hope that in the wake of bilateral relations with European countries and in the continuation of the talks and agreements we had with Borrell, we will see the development and progress of relations," Amir-Abdollahian went on to say.

Regarding the Vienna talks, he stated, "We discussed the continuation of negotiations on the removal of the sanctions between Iran and other parties. We held detailed, deep and accurate talks on Iran's demands, and we stressed to Borrell that we are ready to resume negotiations in the coming days".

"What is important to Iran is the economic benefit from the agreement reached in 2015 and any issue that affects our economic benefit will not be acceptable to the Iranian government."

The EU foreign policy chief, for his part, said that his trip to Tehran has a main goal that is to break the stalemate and reduce tensions over the JCPOA negotiations, and to create a new incentive and opportunity to put the talks back on track.
