Iran will never back down on red lines in Vienna talks

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi says Iran will not back down from the “red line” in nuclear talks with world powers. The European Union (EU) has said that it is time for Washington and Tehran to reach a political agreement.

According to the details, negotiations for the restoration of the 2015 nuclear deal have been going on for 11 months, which is related to lifting sanctions in exchange for halting the nuclear program which is entering its final stages. Iran has demanded the lifting of all sanctions and has asked the United States to guarantee that it will not violate the agreement again.

Earlier in 2018, former President Donald Trump withdrew from the agreement and re-imposed sanctions on Iran. Iran’s chief negotiator in nuclear talks with world powers in Vienna, Ali Bagheri Kani, returned to Iran two days ago for consultations.

According to Fars news agency, Ebrahim Raisi was quoted by Ayatollah Khamenei as saying that “the government is following the principles and procedures set by the head in the nuclear talks.”

“They have not backed down from any of the red lines and will not back down,” he said. EU negotiating coordinator Enrique Mora said political decisions were needed for the talks to succeed in the next few days.

Safra says there are still a number of differences that need to be addressed in the talks. The talks came as Russia sought assurances from the United States on Russia’s trade, investment and military and technical cooperation with Iran over its attack on Ukraine.

Iran has announced the successful launch of its military orbit satellite after reaching key stages in the ongoing negotiations to restore the 2015 nuclear deal.

According to Iranian semi-official news agency, Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), Iran’s second military satellite has been launched into space by a rocket aimed at the Revolutionary Guards’ aerospace wing.

“Iran’s second military satellite — named Nour-2 — has been launched into space by the Qassed rocket of the aerospace wing of the Revolutionary Guards and successfully placed in orbit 500 kilometres (310 miles) above the Earth,” the official IRNA news agency reported.

In a statement issued to Sepah News, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps called it a “spy satellite” saying that the satellite was launched from Shahrud Desert in Semnan Province, which is about 300 km east of the capital.
