    Representatives of Iran and the P5+1 group of international mediators, comprising Russia, China, the United Kingdom, the United States, France and Germany, will meet in the Austrian capital to discuss the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) implementation and the recent US Congress' decision to extend sanctions against Tehran.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The meeting will be held in Vienna’s Palais Coburg Hotel and will be chaired by EU foreign policy deputy chief Helga Schmid.

    The talks follow a letter sent by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, in which the Iranian official had requested to discuss the US Congress' decision to extend anti-Iranian restrictions.
