Senior #Iran MFA official: Iran’s draft proposals are based on the draft of previous 6 rounds & the amendments by Iran are specified on the text. Our proposals are not maximalist but are in full compliance w/ #JCPOA. Other side has a minimalist approach in abiding by commitments.
Source close to Iranian team: #Iran’s draft proposals are balanced & delicately-drafted in strict comformity with terms of the #JCPOA & UNSCR 2231. Major part of proposals entail the draft achieved in past 6 rounds. Real opportunity for US & E3 if they seriously seek an agreement

Senior #Iran MFA official: I think European parties & the US, did not expect Iran to enter into Vienna talks with a full text... That’s why the other parties, since receiving these drafts, raised the idea of a pause in the talks so as to return to capitals for consultations.

Senior #Iran MFA official: Iranian delegation's approach, from day one, has been based on necessary interaction & flexibility, but unfortunately, E3 do not have much decision-making power & have the concern of satisfying US delegation & coordinating their positions with US team.

Senior #Iran official: Western parties could not object to the texts from legal perspective or could not describe them as contrary to #JCPOA. 1st, they were not even willing to grant privileges authorized by JCPOA. 2nd, they were not willing to re-discuss the issues in the drafts

Senior #Iran official: Quality & timing of verification & the guarantee that US will not exit the deal, will be discussed later. From Iran's viewpoint, issue of lifting sanctions is now the main issue in #IranTalks, & other issues cannot be finalized until this issue is clarified
