Iran Accuses Washington and Allies of Unwillingness to Return to JCPOA

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said Tehran is pessimistic about the position of the US and its allies in the Vienna talks on the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

According to the Iranian diplomat, Tehran went to Vienna with “serious determination and a clear plan”.

However, he also added that Tehran is not not optimistic about the US and three European countries (France, Germany, and Great Britain). The diplomat also held a call with his Japanese counterpart Yoshimasa Hayashi.

On the one hand, US officials are asking for negotiations and a return to the JCPOA, and on the other hand, they are at the same time introducing new sanctions against Iranian individuals and legal entities, Abdollahian added.

“The agreement is within reach if the West shows goodwill. We strive for rational, sober, and result-oriented dialogue,” he wrote earlier on Twitter.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken told reporters in Stockholm yesterday that “the recent steps of Iran and their recent rhetoric do not give us much reason for optimism.”
