Head of US Diplomacy, On Sunday, Anthony Blinken said it was unclear whether Iran was ready to take the necessary steps to return to compliance with the international nuclear deal.
Speaking before the fifth round of talks in Vienna on the recovery of the agreement, Blingen was asked by the Iranian side to indicate that Washington has already agreed to lift some of the sanctions that weigh heavily on Iran’s economy.
“We know what sanctions should be lifted if they do not comply with the nuclear deal,” he told the ABC. He said that Iran “knows what needs to be done to reconcile on the nuclear issue”.“What we do not see is whether Iran is ready to make a decision,” he said. “It’s a test and we have no answer yet,” he said.
Donald Trump withdrew the country from the deal in 2017, saying Tehran violated its “spirit” and remained a regional threat. His successor Joe Biden wants to renew the contract. For that to happen, Washington must agree to the lifting of sanctions imposed by Trump again, and Tehran must be bound by the terms of the agreement.
As soon as Trump decided to pull out of the deal, the Islamic Republic began to drop restrictions on its production of nuclear materials.
European participants in the Vienna talks expressed optimism following the recent round of talks that ended on Wednesday. “We have made good progressEU official Enrique Mora, who led the talks between Russia, China, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Iran, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “A deal is developing,” he said.
Indirect talks between Washington and Tehran have been taking place in the Austrian capital since early April, with the other five signatory countries acting as intermediaries in the agreement.
Diplomats hope the United States will return to the ship before the June 18 Iranian presidential election.
The siege of the UN nuclear system
UN Security Council calls on Iran to suspend uranium enrichment The Iranian parliament said on Sunday that the provisional study agreement between the Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had expired and that images recorded at nuclear power plants could not be accessed by the agency. “The agency’s quarterly deadline was July 1 (May 22), based on which the IAEA has no right to access images and information from Iran’s nuclear system. It was discussed yesterday and it was decidedChamber Speaker Mohamed Bagar Caliph reported.
On February 21, the IAEA was able to conclude an interim agreement with a three-month deadline to verify Iran’s nuclear program. If the United States does not lift sanctions against Iran by that time, the aforementioned images could be sent to the UN. The contract stipulated that the company would not be awarded.
It is unclear what will happen to this interim study agreement, and Iran and the IAEA are in talks to expand it, the UN said. An announcement is expected on behalf of the director of the Atomic Energy Organization, Rafael Croce., Who called a press conference this afternoon.
This arrangement was reached with the aim of mitigating the impact of the termination of Iran’s use of the so-called additional arrangement, which provided IAEA inspectors with free access to any site in Iran without prior notice. The move, which seeks to pressure the United States to lift sanctions against Persia, is actually in a law approved by the Iranian parliament last December.
About, Khalifa stressed that parliament “decides” that the aforementioned law “must be implemented on specific dates”, while Supreme Leader Ale Zamane insisted that it be agreed to., According to state media. Ale Akbar Saleh, head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency, called for an order to “remove videos and images from the cameras” during an open session of parliament today, Deputy Ali Reza Saleemi said.
Despite significant progress, the interim agreement in Vienna expired without negotiations to save the 2015 nuclear deal from reaching a conclusion, but further cuts in studies would damage these negotiations.
