Iran Names Three Conditions For US Return To Nuclear Deal

The United States will be able to return to the JCPOA if it lifts economic sanctions against Tehran, admits its guilt in the collapse of the nuclear deal, and assures Tehran that such a withdrawal by the United States from the deal will not happen again, said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Said Khatibzade. Writes about this TASS.

According to the diplomat, “the United States … is not a member of the JCPOA and cannot ask for anything under this agreement from other members of the deal.”

Khatibzadeh also charted the path for the United States to return to the JCPOA. “They must … assure that no other administration will repeat Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran from now on,” the diplomat said. Other conditions he called Washington’s recognition of its guilt in the collapse of the JCPOA, as well as the lifting of sanctions against Tehran.

Recall that the JCPOA in 2015 was concluded by Great Britain, Germany, China, Russia, USA, France and Iran. The deal included the lifting of sanctions in exchange for limiting Iran’s nuclear program as a guarantor of Tehran’s non-receipt of nuclear weapons. In May 2018, Donald Trump, as head of state, decided to unilaterally withdraw and reinstate tough restrictive measures against Tehran. After that, Iran announced a phased reduction of its obligations under the agreement.

Since April 2021, negotiations between Iran and the international “five” are underway in Vienna with the aim of restoring the nuclear agreement in its original form. We are talking about the return of the United States to the deal, the lifting of American sanctions on Iran and the fulfillment by the Iranian authorities of their nuclear obligations. The negotiation process has been suspended for the time being; the last meeting took place in June.

On November 6, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdollahian. The ministers discussed the situation around the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program. They spoke in favor of restoring the nuclear deal to its original configuration.
