JCPOA Revival Attainable: Iranian Diplomat

JCPOA Revival Attainable: Iranian Diplomat

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Iranian deputy foreign minister said the 2015 nuclear deal will have a chance of being implemented in full again should the European troika demonstrate “credible political will” and resume honoring their commitments.

“A critical reminder: 5 years ago, the US rendered a fatal blow to 'rule of law at the international level' by unlawfully withdrawing from JCPOA. Ever since, the US has failed to reverse its wrongful act. Iran's legitimate remedial measures will continue,” Ali Baqeri said in a post on his Twitter account on Tuesday.

“The full implementation of JCPOA (with effective sanctions lifting at its core) could be resumed, should the reneging party (and EU/E3) demonstrate credible political will to that effect. No opportunity is forever!” the Iranian deputy minister added.

Since April 2021, several rounds of talks between Iran and the five remaining parties to the JCPOA -Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia- have been held to bring the US back into the Iran deal.

The talks, however, have excluded American diplomats due to their country’s withdrawal from the deal.

On May 1, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani reiterated Tehran’s readiness for the conclusion of negotiations on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal and the removal of sanctions against Iran, warning the Europeans that such a window will not remain open forever.
