Iran says EU's proposals for reviving 2015 nuclear deal only acceptable

TEHRAN - An Iranian diplomat said Friday that the European Union proposals for reviving a 2015 nuclear deal would only be acceptable if the fulfillment of Iran's demands is ensured, according to the official news agency IRNA.

On condition of anonymity, the diplomat said Iran is reviewing the proposals to see if they have credibility in meeting Iran's various demands, including resolving political claims about IAEA safeguards, removing sanctions on Iran, and having all sides guaranteed to reach an agreement at the end of the nuclear negotiations.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was put forward by the EU on Monday as a final text of the draft decision on reviving the nuclear deal, while awaiting political decisions from the participants in the Vienna talks.

The talks began in April 2021 in the Austrian capital but were suspended in March because of political differences between Tehran and Washington.

After a five-month hiatus, the latest round of talks came to an end on Monday.

In July 2015, Iran signed the JCPOA with world powers, agreeing to curb its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of sanctions on the country. Former US President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement and imposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.
