Added On June 3, 2021

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said that the main issues between Tehran and Washington in the ongoing nuclear talks in Vienna have been settled.

According to the official IRNA news agency on Wednesday, Rouhani said at the cabinet meeting that Iran is witnessing  the resolution of major issues with the United States in the Vienna talks aimed at the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal.
He hailed what he called the "victory" of his administration in the face of challenges caused by the United States, linking them to the patience of the Iranian people, his administration's prudence and leadership guidance.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister and top nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi said on Monday that "good progress" has been made in Vienna talks.
In May 2018, Trump pulled Washington out of the 2015 nuclear deal and unilaterally re-imposed sanctions on Iran. In response, Tehran gradually stopped implementing parts of its commitments from May 2019.
The nuclear deal joint commission began to meet offline on April sixth in Vienna to continue the discussion about a possible return of the United States to the deal and how to ensure its full and effective implementation.
