TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi and Oman’s Minister Responsible for Foreign Affairs Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah held a meeting in Norway’s capital for talks on the Iran nuclear deal and regional issues.

The Iranian and Omani officials met on the sidelines of the Oslo Forum on Thursday.

Salehi and bin Alawi discussed regional developments and the latest status of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers from which the US withdrew in May 2018.

In his trip to Oslo, Salehi has held meetings with Norway’s foreign minister, secretary general of European External Action Service (EEAS), and the United Nations secretary-general.

After US President Donald Trump’s move to pull his country out of the JCPOA, Iran and the remaining parties to the deal (Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany) launched talks to avert a collapse of the agreement.

Meanwhile, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has underlined that any decision to keep the JCPOA running without the US should be conditional on “practical guarantees” from the Europeans.
