Iran insists on US sanctions be lifted before it returns to nuclear deal

Iran insists on US sanctions be lifted before it returns to nuclear deal

Tehran, Apr 23 (Prensa Latina) Iran on Friday insisted that it will first verify the lifting of US sanctions for a total return to what is agreed in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or nuclear deal.

In any case, it rejects promises to eliminate those US coercive measures that it will only accept in practice, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said.

Tehran will refute a temporary deal to revive the JCPOA and will also check the United States actions, the spokesman ratified.

As the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) does not accept statements and requires physical and face-to-face verification, Iran demands similar conditions.

The sanctions imposed to Iran include a ban on financial transactions, oil sale, insurance and transportation, as well as obstacles to buying medicines and supplies to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to the Iranian spokesman, Iran never discussed any temporary deal with Washington, but emphasized its full commitment to the 2015 deal between Tehran and the 5+1 group (the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China plus Germany).

The US Government withdrew from that deal in May 2018 and reimposed coercive measures on Tehran, which were left behind in the multilateral pact.
