Tehran says Washington “hints at its desire” to revive the JCPOA

Tehran says Washington “hints at its desire” to revive the JCPOA

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 28, ARMENPRESS. During contacts between Iran and the United States Washington has hinted at the desire for the participants of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to revert to their previous obligations as per the nuclear agreement, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian told Al Mayadeen on the sidelines of the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

“Letters are still being exchanged between Tehran and Washington regarding several topics. The American side sometimes hints at its desire for all participating parties to revert to their previous obligations as per the nuclear agreement. On our part, we frankly expressed our readiness to welcome recommendations that would allow reversion to previous commitments, but also annul the unilateral sanctions imposed on Iran," he clarified.

FM Amir-Abdollahian said that under President Ebrahim Raisi’s government, Iran held serious talks with nuclear negotiators, “but unfortunately, at a certain point, the war in Ukraine cast its shadows on them.”

“The Iranian government affirmed from the start that it does not consider the nuclear agreement as an approach to resolving the country’s issues, but Iran has proven that it is one of the countries most committed to its international pledges,” he once again said of Iran's nuclear program, which Tehran has maintained for years is solely peaceful.

JCPOA commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, is an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program reached in 2015 between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council+Germany. In 2018, the United States withdrew from the JCPOA under President Donald Trump.
