Dialogue with parties to Iran's nuclear deal continues, says senior Russian diplomat

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov on Wednesday said dialogue between Russia and the parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) continues despite there are no face-to-face contacts.
"As for face-to-face contacts, there are no [such contacts] now. We continue the working dialogue with all the parties," he said when asked whether there were dates for contacts on Iran’s nuclear program.

The future of the Iranian nuclear deal was called into question after the United States’ unilateral pullout on May 8, 2018, and Washington’s unilateral oil export sanctions imposed on Tehran. 

Tehran argues that all other participants, Europeans in the first place, ignore some of their own obligations in the economic sphere, thus making the deal in its current shape senseless. 

Due to this, Iran began the process of stage-by-stage suspension of its commitments under the deal regarding uranium enrichment and research activities leading to tensions and escalation of tensions between Washington and Tehran in one hand and the entire middle east region.

United States, Russia, China, The UK, France and Germany are all signatory to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.
