Talks with powers to continue over saving nuclear deal, Iran says

VIENNA (Reuters) - Talks with European powers on an economic package aimed at salvaging the Iran nuclear deal will continue after a round of discussions that took place in Vienna on Friday, Iran’s deputy foreign minister said.

“For the time being we are negotiating... to see if they can provide us with a package which can actually give Iran the benefits of sanctions-lifting and then the next step is to find guarantees for that package and we need both legal and political commitments by the remaining participants in the JCPOA (deal),” Abbas Araqchi told reporters.

He was speaking after the meeting with counterparts from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia.
