“We have had many hours of engagement, and all delegations have pressed Iran to be reasonable,” said the diplomats, from Britain, France and Germany.

“We are losing precious time dealing with new Iranian positions inconsistent with the JCPOA or that go beyond it.”

Talks resumed on salvaging the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on November 29. Diplomats from Iran, Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia are attending.
