Nuclear: Iran increasingly considers the return to the 2015 agreement “useless”

Date:

The possible revival of the 2015 nuclear deal has become increasingly “useless” for Iran, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said yesterday, Saturday.

“Today, the more we advance, the more the JCPOA (acronym for the nuclear agreement in English, Editor’s note) becomes useless,” said Mr. Amir-Abdollahian during a speech to students at the University of Tehran.

The 2015 agreement governing Tehran’s nuclear activities in exchange for a lifting of international sanctions was shattered following Washington’s withdrawal in 2018 decided by then-President Donald Trump.

His successor, Joe Biden, tried to revive it but the negotiations initiated between Tehran and the five countries still signatories (China, Russia, United Kingdom, France and Germany), with the indirect participation of the United States, are at a standstill. since summer 2022.

“Given that (Iran’s) red lines have sometimes been ignored by the other side, we are not currently on the path to return to the agreement,” Amir-Abdollahian said.

“Of course, this does not mean that we have left the agreement aside. If the agreement serves our interests, (we will accept it) with all its flaws,” he added.
