Biden's eagerness to get the US back into the Iran nuclear deal is extremely worrying.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Saturday that Tehran was opposed to any gradual easing of sanctions.
The United States says it will not lift sanctions on Iran until they return to compliance with the limits on their nuclear program.
Iran's enrichment was seen as upping the pressure for a US return to the nuclear deal and a lifting of Trump's sanctions, which included banking measures aimed at cutting off the country from the worldwide financial system.
The Vienna meeting will aim at drawing up two separate agreements, one with the USA and with Iran, on steps they will take to return to the agreement and timetables for returning.
In a tweet, Zarif said the aim of the Vienna session would be to "rapidly finalise sanction-lifting & nuclear measures for choreographed removal of all sanctions, followed by Iran ceasing remedial measures".
"We are ready to pursue a return to compliance with our JCPOA commitments consistent with Iran also doing the same", Price said Thursday.
This kind of delusional thinking is likely to undermine efforts to rein in Iranian ambitions and prevent a full-scale war in the region between Iran and Israel.
The Netherlands suspends use of AstraZeneca vaccine for under-60s
Vials of AstraZeneca's Covishield vaccine for Covid-19 are seen at a filling lab at the Serum Institute of India, Pune. The European Medicines Agency said its safety committee will probably issue an updated recommendation next week.
The Vienna talks will also include the governments of Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation which all remain parties and supporters of the nuclear deal negotiated under former United States president Barack Obama.
"In line with the joint ministerial statement of 21 December participants recognised the prospect of a full return of the U.S.to the JCPOA, and underlined their readiness to positively address this in a joint effort", the European External Action Service (EEAS) said in a statement.
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said it was "good that all the relevant actors would meet in Vienna next week". But Iran has stated flatly that the USA must lift all sanctions before they will even sit down to discuss re-entering the deal.
"We've been looking at options for doing so, including with indirect conversations through our European partners", Price added.
Iran has far exceeded the 3.67 percent uranium enrichment limit under the deal, having recently reached 20 percent uranium enrichment.
As part of its ongoing violations of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran last month began restricting IAEA inspections of its nuclear facilities. It will then hand them over to the Vienna-based United Nations atomic watchdog if it is granted sanctions relief.
In the USA, conservatives have pushed the Biden administration to broaden talks to address other complaints against Iran, including its crucial support to armed groups in Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen and Syria and its detention of American citizens, as a condition for lifting sanctions.
White House officials made no immediate comment on the Vienna talks.
