Sanctions removal talks

Iran and the other signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal continue their seventh round of talks in Vienna. Discussions are focused on two issues: the removal of sanctions on Iran and its nuclear commitments. Iran has dismissed Western media reports that it has withdrawn its draft proposals on those subjects. It has repeatedly stressed that the negotiations should lead to a verifiable removal of all sanctions against it. On Friday Iran’s lead negotiator met with the Austrian foreign minister. Ali Bagheri Kani stressed Iran’s seriousness and good will in the talks saying the 2015 nuclear deal is alive because of Tehran’s responsible conduct. Bagheri Kani insisted that dishonest reports from outside the negotiating room won't weaken the Iranian delegation’s will to reach a deal securing the nation’s rights and interests.

Iran’s UNSCEAR membership

The United Nations’ General Assembly has approved Iran’s full membership in the UN Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation. The committee is tasked with assessing and reporting on nuclear radiation and its associated health risks. Before obtaining full membership, Iran had observer status in the scientific committee. Iran’s accession was first approved last month in the General Assembly’s Fourth Committee, despite opposition from the Israeli regime and the United States.

Assange extradition to US

The British Royal Court of Justice has sided with the US in its appeal related to jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The ruling means that Assange could indeed be forcefully extradited to America, overruling an earlier decision that he may not be shipped over mental health concerns.
