Iran Wants Guarantees from US on Nuclear Deal

Iran wants to receive assurances from the US that in the future, Washington won’t unilaterally withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as well as guarantees on the lifting of sanctions, IRNA agency reported.

“Given the years of serious violations of the JCPOA by other parties, it is important to provide sufficient assurance that all sanctions (against Iran – IF) are lifted in a verifiable way.” Iranian diplomats warned.

According to the sources, such guarantees “are necessary to strengthen Iran’s confidence in the commitment of the US and Europe to the agreement”, and to ensure the economic benefits that this bring to Iran, to create a “calm and stable atmosphere, facilitate the development of normal economic and trade contacts and cooperation with Iran. “.

The Iranian diplomat Majid Takht-Ravanchi stressed that “the JCPOA is a deal made to protect the interests of all parties.”

“We are sincere and serious in the current negotiations, and our goal is to ensure that the deal is completed by all parties, no more, no less,” he said.

In 2015, Iran and the “six” countries – five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany – signed a nuclear agreement under the JCPOA, according to which Iran must admit IAEA inspectors to its nuclear facilities in exchange for a step-by-step lifting of sanctions on Iran.

Former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA, repealing the decree of the previous president of the country three years later, and resumed anti-Iranian sanctions, prompting Tehran to gradually abandon some of the terms of the deal.
