Abbas Araghchi said the meeting mainly reviewed recent progress in negotiations on the lifting of U.S. sanctions against Iran and Iran’s re-implementation of the agreement. The report of the Working Group of Experts was discussed, and a broader consensus was reached on the ultimate goal, deepening mutual understanding.
