Friday's meeting in Vienna among the remaining signatories of the emblematic nuclear affair may be the "last chance" to save the historic agreement warned by Iran.
In comments from Iran's Father's news agency, Foreign Minister spokesman Abbas Mousavi said that the gathering in Austria's capital was an opportunity to see how those who were still party to the agreement in 2015 could "fulfill their obligations to Iran. ".
Concerns are superfluous, the deal will coincide after the United States unilaterally withdrew from the agreement a year ago and reimposed punitive sanctions against Iran. Fear remains that a conflict between Iran and the US could break out after an American drone was shot down last week, and US President Donald Trump dismissed retaliation at the last minute.
In spite of supporting Iran in several statements, Mousavi said the remaining signatories ̵
Tehran has threatened to break the boundary of its low enriched uranium inventory mandate during the agreement in return for the US approach, which has also seen Trump's attempt to digest Iranian oil exports amid a burgeoning word war between Washington and Tehran over several flashpoints in the Middle East.
Iran is expected to exceed this limit in days.
Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi, who is in Vienna, said that Iran has run out of "strategic patience" and adds that it will not remain "unilaterally committed to the nuclear price."
Araqchi said he hoped that the meeting in Vienna could lead to "tangible" action Father's news agency reported.
& # 39; We will sell our oil & # 39;
An Iranian official speaking on condition of anonymity to Reuters news agency said Tehran's main concern was oil sales.
"What is our demand? Our requirement is to be able to sell our oil and get the money back. And this is actually the least of our benefit from the deal," the official said. "We do not ask Europeans to invest in Iran … We will only sell our oil."
Iran's crude exports fell to about 300,000 barrels a day for the first three weeks of June, according to industry sources, from over 2.5 million bpd in April 2018, before Trump concludes the agreement.
In light of declining revenue and in an attempt to save the deal, Iran's European partners are expected to announce the creation of a multimillion dollar credit line to Tehran at the Vienna Summit.
The measure aims to keep economic ties between European governments and Tehran alive by kick-starting a trade mechanism known as INSTEX –  Instrument for Trade Exchanges – that is, designed for To enable barter trade between Iran and the West, named officials told the Wall Street Journal on Thursday.
INSTEX is not yet operational and diplomats have said it will on I am able to handle small quantities of goods as medicine – not the big oil sales Iran seeks.
"We need to see how much money can be transferred through INSTEX," Mousavi said. "If it's an artificial mechanism, Iran will certainly not accept it."
