Moscow expecting JCPOA meeting in Vienna to have positive atmosphere - diplomat

BRUSSELS. June 28 (Interfax) - The consultations held in view of the Friday meeting of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Joint Commission in Vienna indicate that the meeting will have a positive and businesslike atmosphere, Russian Permanent Representative to International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov said.

"A meeting of the Joint Commission on JCPOA at the level of political directors will start in 50 minutes. Preparatory meetings in various formats showed that expectations are high. The atmosphere seems to be positive and businesslike," Ulyanov wrote on Twitter.

Representatives of Russia, the EU3 (France, the UK, and Germany), the European Union, China, and Iran will try to rescue the Iran nuclear deal.

Experts have dubbed the meeting as "the last try" to save the deal concluded after a decade of talks in July 2015 by the six international intermediaries (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) and Iran.
