Iran will return to talks on resuming the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) investigation when it receives US guarantees of the economic benefits of the move. Iran's permanent representative to the organization, Majid Takht-Ravanchi, said this at the UN NPT Review Conference.
“Since April 2021, Iran has been negotiating in good faith with other participants regarding the resumption of the full execution of the deal. Achievement of this goal is being delayed because the US has not yet decided to guarantee that Iran will receive the economic benefits promised by the agreement, — he said.
According to him, as soon as the US “makes the right decision”, Iran will resume full implementation of measures related to the nuclear sphere in accordance with the 2015 agreement.
In 2015, Iran, the US, Russia, France, the UK, Germany and China signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. States — the parties to the deal agreed not to impose sanctions on Tehran in exchange for its renunciation of the development of nuclear weapons, restrictions on the degree of uranium enrichment and access of IAEA inspectors to Iran's nuclear facilities.
Washington in 2018 during the presidency of Donald Trump withdrew from the deal, citing Tehran's violation of the agreements. Iran responded by enriching uranium above the permitted level.
In the fall of 2021, US President Joe Biden announced his readiness to return to compliance with the terms of the nuclear deal if Iran takes similar steps. Negotiations between the parties took place in Doha at the end of June. The American side was represented by Special Envoy Robert Malley, the Iranian — Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani. Enrique Mora, Political Director of the EU Foreign Service, acted as the coordinator.
On June 30, Mora said that the parties had made no progress following the talks, Reuters reported. According to the Iranian agency IRNA, Iran considered the approach of the West to the negotiations “inadequate”. Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi noted that false accusations were made against Tehran, since the IAEA confirms the transparency and peaceful orientation of the country's nuclear program.
