Sayyed Abbas Araqchi, Iran’s top nuclear negotiator and one of the deputy foreign ministers, said that if the United States really wanted to return to the nuclear deal, it would have to lift all sanctions on Tehran at once.
He made the remarks in an interview with Iran’s satellite television channel Press TV on the sidelines of a meeting of the Joint Commission on the Nuclear Deal in Vienna, Austria.
He confirmed to Press TV that no US representative was present at the meeting. The meeting will focus on Iran’s nuclear deal and lifting of sanctions, with Iran, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany taking part.
Arakchi said, “After the Vienna meeting, the member states that have survived the nuclear deal will talk to the United States. This is entirely their subject. We will not be involved in it. We will only talk to five ethnic groups. ”
Arakchi said that Iran is attaching great importance to the implementation of the nuclear deal, but the United States is not. That is why they have come out of this agreement. The fact that Iran is now talking about lifting sanctions at once is very logical because, according to the agreement, sanctions were to be lifted; They have to do it now. Since the United States has pulled out of the deal, it is up to them to return to the deal, and to lift all anti-Iran sanctions in one go.
