On Tuesday, Riyadh — Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Faisal Bin Farhan said; Iran appeared to be stalling in talks at Vienna with global powers to salvage a nuclear pact and hoped for early progress.
Addressing a press conference following the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) summit here on Tuesday evening; the minister said the Kingdom was in constant contact with parties to the talks in Vienna, and the feedback does not lead to optimism.
“So far, the reports show there is some stalling by Iran, and we hope this will turn to progress soon. The GCC states prefer to be part of the talks; that would be open to any mechanism that addresses their concerns,” he said.

Prince Faisal bin Farhan affirmed that the Vienna negotiations currently do not lead to optimism. On the contrary, a hard Iranian position appears to have reversed what was agreed upon in the previous rounds of talks.
“We want a long and comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran, and we hope the negotiations will succeed. We want a normal relationship with Iran, and that depends on it; ” he said while stressing that Iran’s hard-line position in the Vienna negotiations is worrisome.
