TEHRAN, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Some issues in the ongoing talks in Vienna to revive the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal remain unresolved, the Iranian Foreign Ministry's spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said Monday.

Khatibzadeh said during his weekly press briefing that some issues of technical, legal and executive subtleties and a number of main issues remain to be solved in the talks.

The ways for the United States and Iran to fulfill and resume their commitments are underway in the talks, Khatibzadeh said, adding "there is no impasse."

The Iranian officials urged the U.S. government to avoid "repeating the events" during the period of former President Donald Trump.

The latest meeting of the Joint Commission of the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), started on Saturday with the participation of representatives from China, France, Germany, Russia, Britain and Iran.

The U.S. government under Trump withdrew from the JCPOA in May 2018 and unilaterally reimposed sanctions on Iran. In response, Iran gradually stopped implementing parts of its JCPOA commitments from May 2019.

The JCPOA Joint Commission began to meet offline on April 6 in Austria's capital Vienna to continue previous discussions regarding a possible return of Washington to the JCPOA and on how to ensure the full and effective implementation of the JCPOA.
