President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi dismissed the idea of holding negotiations over the revival of the 215 Iran nuclear deal under pressure, saying such tactics have never yielded the US and Europe any results.
A senior Iranian lawmaker said the previous framework for conducting multilateral negotiations in the Austrian capital to revive the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA, was flawed and the talks must continue on a new platform.
Iran’s top security official blasted US President Joe Biden on Saturday for illegally threatening the Islamic Republic after he said the White House may consider other options if nuclear diplomacy with Tehran fails.
In his last letter to the United Nations secretary-general, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif compiled all documents about six years of Western non-compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear deal signed between the Islamic Republic and world powers in 2015, from which former US president Donald Trump withdrew and reimposed sanctions lifted under the accord.
Robert Malley, the US special envoy for Iran, admitted on Sunday that the “maximum pressure” campaign pushed by former president Donald Trump against the Islamic Republic “failed miserably” and “hurt US interests”.
