Top officials from Iran and remaining participants of 2015 nuclear deal met in Vienna to discuss the simmering gulf tensions between US and Iran. The main aim of the congregation was to talk over the implementation of the deal.
Officials from Iran insisted that Iran wants to continue the deal. They requested EU countries to import Iranian oil to stabilize its crumbling economy, an outcome of US sanctions.
Iran has called the Vienna meeting with remaining parties of nuclear deal a last occasion to keep alive nuclear deal. It also rejected to accept any artificial solution of United States sanctions on the country and ask the European powers to show their commitment to Tehran.
