Enrique Mora, the European envoy to the Iranian nuclear talks, said the indirect talks underway in Doha between the United States and Iran ended without making the expected progress.
Mora’s comments came after Iran confirmed earlier Wednesday that the talks would conclude in just two days, with no news of an agreement reaching a deal that would help advance talks with major countries in Vienna, but considered talks “gaining momentum” . place in a professional and serious atmosphere.
“Two intense days of indirect negotiations in Doha on the JCPOA, unfortunately the progress that the EU coordinator team hoped for has not yet been achieved,” Mora tweeted.
Two tense days of indirect talks in Doha. #SVPD. Unfortunately, this is not yet the progress that the EU team as coordinator had hoped for. We will continue to work with even greater urgency to bring back a key deal on nonproliferation and regional stability. @JosepBorrellpic.twitter.com/eA1Wluif01

“We will continue to work with even greater urgency to get the master deal back on track (for) regional stability,” he added.
More’s tweet came after his meeting with chief Iranian negotiator Ali Bagheri on the evening of the second day of talks in Qatar.
Earlier today, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani said in Tehran that “the two-day talks are not over yet and there will be another meeting between (Bakeri and Mora) tonight.”
Earlier, he did not report on the duration of the talks indirectly held in Doha with the American delegation headed by the US Special Representative in Iran, Robert Malley.
The Doha talks are taking place ahead of US President Joe Biden’s upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia in the middle of next month.
