The US has questioned Iran's intentions to resume the nuclear deal
The US believes that the Iranian authorities have not yet made a decision about returning to negotiations on restoring the nuclear deal or abandoning them. This was stated by the press-secretary of the State Department, Ned Price.
"This is a decision that they need to make, a decision that they need to report. As far as I know, they did not make such a decision and, of course, they did not report it," he said.
The United States has called on Iran to resume negotiations in Vienna as soon as possible on restoring the nuclear deal and warns that the possibilities for this are not endless.
Earlier, it was reported that Washington is ready to lift some sanctions against Tehran in order to force Iran to return to compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on its Nuclear program. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki called the discussion on the fate of the Iranian nuclear deal "encouraging".
The JCPOA agreement on Iran was signed in the summer of 2015 between Tehran and six intermediary countries. Later, Iran was convicted of gross violations of the agreements. In early May 2018, the United States announced a unilateral withdrawal from the deal and the resumption of anti-Iranian sanctions. Iran announced its rejection of the JCPOA agreements in January 2020.
