Many observers following the negotiations in Vienna to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), had hoped an agreement would finally be announced this last weekend. However, no deal was announced and Russia appeared to throw a last-minute wrench into the talks.

He told reporters, “We will not allow any foreign events to influence our national interests in the negotiations to remove sanctions.”
