Ball in U.S. court on nuclear deal

He also said that any agreement being achieved in Vienna should be passed by Parliament.

As things stand, Iran appears to have done its part and made every necessary decision needed to resuscitate the JCPOA. Therefore, it’s now the U.S.’s turn to do the same and facilitate the conclusion of the talks.

The U.S. confirmed that it has received the Iranian response via the EU and said that it will need “some time” to study it.

U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price said on Tuesday, “We are still studying [the response].”

He added, “It will require some time to digest what has been provided to the EU and in turn what has been provided to us.”

EU envoy holds talks in Iran to bridge nuclear deal gaps

Iran has been engaged in negotiations to revive the accord formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia directly, and the United States indirectly since April 2021.

European Union diplomat Enrique Mora, who coordinates talks between Iran and the US, arrived in Tehran late Saturday and on Sunday met Iran’s chief negotiator Ali Bagheri, state news agency IRNA reported.

I fucking hate the anti-Iran nuclear deal movement. It’s a weird movement that has no real point other than „opposing Iran.“ If you start discussing that, though, you never really get any specifics. I think leaving the JCPOA helps Iran and specifically Iranian hardliners.

Russia backs down on demands in Iran nuclear deal talks, making revival of 2015 pact imminent

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday that he had “received written guarantees” from the U.S. that its demands would be met, meaning the talks will likely proceed. The nearly simultaneous release of British-Iranian dual nationals from years of Iranian detention back to the U.K. and a reported U.K. repayment of a decades-old $530 million debt to Iran have improved prospects for an agreement.
