The non-resident fellow at the Atlantic Council, Sina Azodi, said in an interview with ILNA that “I believe that the Vienna talks on the revival of the 2015 deal have not reached a deadlock.”
He said that “We are in a situation in which both the U.S. and Iran politically and temporally have invested and I don’t think that none of them want these negotiations to fail.”
He pointed that at the same time, each one tries not to give up and to make fewer concessions.
“The more these messages and ideas become more public, the more they give an opportunity to opponents of the JCPOA in the U.S. and Iran to lobby and put pressure against the revival of the 2015 deal,” he said.
Azodi said that the more the negotiations will take a longer time and become more public, the more the talks will be harmed.
He considered the indirect talks between the U.S. and Iran the reason for the delay in the revival of the JCPOA, adding that “I believe that direct negotiations are in favor of both the U.S. and Iran.”
