Iran and the remaining parties to the 2015 nuclear deal met on Friday a day after they resumed talks in Vienna in an effort to save the accord the US pulled out of it three years ago and imposed sanctions on Iran.
Iran’s foreign minister ruled out negotiations over the 2015 nuclear agreement for the sake of negotiations, saying the timing and duration of current talks in Vienna are determined only by national interests.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called on the three European parties to the 2015 nuclear agreement to honor their commitments under the historic pact and act “constructively” in an upcoming meeting in Vienna.
As long as US sanctions against Iran are not verifiably lifted, the Islamic Republic will not return to full compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal and Washington will not be able to take part in the talks between Tehran and other signatories to the agreement, said an Iranian MP.
Iran’s foreign minister once again ruled out any renegotiation of the nuclear deal clinched by Iran and six world powers in 2015, urging all parties to get down to implementing the deal, instead of just posturing.
