The Iranian nuclear agreement was discussed in light of the eighth round of negotiations on the revival of the JCPOA that resumed in Vienna on Dec. 27, 2021, the ministry said in a statement.

In addition, both ministers covered bilateral ties and regional issues.

Since April last year, Iran and the major parties to the 2015 nuclear pact, namely Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia, have held seven rounds of talks in Vienna on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal. The United States has been taking part in the talks indirectly.

The eighth round of negotiations began in Vienna on Dec. 27, and resumed on Jan. 3 this year.

Following talks in January, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said they "had gained momentum," adding that all parties demonstrated readiness to find solutions to the remaining problems.
