Tehran/Washington
The nuclear deal is under threat since the victory of radical leader Ibrahim Raisi in Iran. Raisi has been very vocal about America and Israel. He has previously supported Iran’s nuclear weapons program. In such a situation, as soon as the news of his victory came, the five largest countries of the world held a big meeting regarding the Iran nuclear deal. Senior diplomats from China, Germany, France, Russia and Britain participated in this meeting held in Vienna, Austria. On the other hand, US National Security Adviser Jack Sullivan has said that at this time America’s top priority is to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

New Iranian president may disrupt nuclear deal
In the meeting in Vienna, many important discussions took place on the re-implementation of the historic 2015 nuclear deal with the aim of controlling Iran’s nuclear program. Several diplomats who attended the meeting said that the issues they discussed need to be approved by the governments of the respective countries. Concerns were also raised at the meeting that Iran’s newly elected president could create obstacles in the re-implementation of the nuclear deal.

Final decision on agreement possible in next meeting
Russia’s top representative for the talks, Mikhail Ulyanov, wrote in a tweet on Saturday that members of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will decide on further plans at talks in Vienna. Although a plan for the re-implementation of the Iran nuclear deal is almost ready, no final decision has been taken so far.

Iranian representative also said – we are close to the agreement
Iran’s deputy foreign minister, Syed Abbas Aragchi, said on Sunday that almost all the documents of the JCPOA agreement had been discussed well and the diplomats involved would soon return to their home countries. Diplomats will now not only consult with the governments of their respective countries but will also discuss for the final decision. Aragchi said that we are now in such a position that we feel that the documents of the agreement are almost ready. Some issues are disputed while some issues have been resolved.

America did not attend the meeting
The US did not participate in the talks in Vienna, because in 2018, then US President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of America from the historic nuclear deal and the imposition of tough sanctions on Iran. Current US President Joe Biden, however, has expressed his desire to rejoin the nuclear deal with certain conditions. A US delegation in Vienna is indirectly engaging in talks with Iran through diplomats from other countries.

This is the first meeting after the victory of Ibrahim Raisi.
It was the first meeting on Sunday of Iran’s hardline judiciary chief Ibrahim Raisi since his presidential election victory. The meeting in Vienna was not given much attention due to the presidential election in Iran. Reysi’s return to power will increase the dominance of radicals in Iran because he is considered close to the country’s supreme religious leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Reisi would be the first Iranian president to be banned by the US in 1988, accusing him of being involved in mass executions. Iran is rapidly engaged in the work of enrichment of uranium, although it is still far from making weapons.

Iran’s tensions with Israel-US at peak
After the assassination of Iran’s top nuclear scientist last year, relations with Israel and the United States have been strained. Israel’s newly-elected Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Sunday warned countries involved in the nuclear deal, saying that Reisi’s election as Iran’s new president is the last chance for global powers to settle down and look at who they are negotiating with. .

Israeli PM calls Iranian leaders killers
Bennett condemned the leaders of Iran, saying that these people are murderers. They have massacred people. These people should not have such weapons, so that they can kill lakhs of people. Indeed, Israel has long maintained that it opposes the nuclear program of its arch-rival Iran and will not allow it to develop nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said he hoped that talks in Vienna would not be affected by the election of Raisi as Iran’s new president.
