March 5, 2019

TEHRAN – Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi left Tehran for Vienna on Tuesday to participate in the joint commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Wednesday.

Co-chaired by Araqchi and European External Action Service Helga Schmid, it will also be attended by deputy foreign ministers of Germany, Britain, France, Russia, and China, Mehr reported.

Araqchi will also meet separately with some of his counterparts and also with Helga Schmid on Tuesday.

The Wednesday session will be focused on ways to get around U.S. unilateral sanctions against Iran, as well as solutions to implement remaining parties' commitments. 

In a meeting with a German Foreign Ministry official in Tehran on Monday, Araqchi said Europe must do concrete actions to protect the JCPOA and pay its costs.
