Besides, the discussions in the Vienna meeting would be around the fulfillment of obligations by the other parties to the deal to safeguard Iran's agreement interests, Khatibzadeh added.

But Iran is demanding an end to crippling sanctions imposed by Trump and has refused to meet USA negotiators at the latest talks, meaning European players will act as intermediaries. After Iran verifies USA sanction removal measures, it will be ready to reverse its measures pertaining to the suspension of its commitments taken because of the opposite sides' violation of the deal, he added.

New details have emerged about Tuesday's planned diplomatic talks in Vienna to try to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, including the apparent venues where representatives of world powers are to have separate meetings with US and Iranian delegations.

I think [the Biden administration] are hell-bent, whether it's before the Iranian elections in May or June, or immediately afterward that they want back into this deal.

Nor is it clear that the USA administration is willing to lift all of its sanctions, as Iran is demanding.

Washington said it expects the talks to be "difficult" and does not foresee any early breakthrough. Price said the US does not anticipate direct talks with Iran but remains open to them.

USA and Iranian officials are scheduled to begin indirect talks in Vienna on Tuesday - with European officials expected to act as intermediaries - to try to revive the 2015 pact. These are early days.

Just last week, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif tweeted a face-to-face meeting was "unnecessary". The spokesman ruled out any plan for the step-by-step removal of anti-Iran sanctions by the United States.

US President Joe Biden has said he is ready to reverse the decision of his predecessor Donald Trump and return to the 2015 agreement, which was supposed to ensure that Iran never developed a military nuclear programme.

The two likely venues for the talks will be the Austrian capital's Hotel Imperial and Grand Hotel Vienna, according to VOA Persian. While they're slated for one day, it could extend on, especially if the separate "working groups" make progress and bring in technical experts to finalize details on Iranian and USA compliance. There are critical questions remaining, including how quickly Iran can dismantle the advanced centrifuges now spinning, how it will reduce its stockpile of enriched uranium, and what to do about its gains in research and development as it violated its terms of the deal.

Iran has called for all Trump-era sanctions to be removed, saying they violated the deal. But the State Department indicated Monday that it will only lift those related to Iran's nuclear program.

Speaking Monday in Tehran, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh reiterated that his side wants the talks to focus on the US lifting what he called its cruel Iran sanctions.
