Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh denounced that Washington and London seek to satisfy Israel’s interests, instead of focusing on the pact.
Both countries, the Iranian spokesman said in a message on social media, distort the ongoing talks in Vienna, Austria, in which the key point is that the United States returns to the deal and the anti-Iranian measures are eliminated.
‘To pacify Israel, a sworn enemy of the JCPOA, the United Kingdom and the United States seek to make talks tense in the Austrian capital,’ Khatibzadeh said.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken blamed the Islamic Republic for the situation around the nuclear deal, from which the United States withdrew in 2018, after which it reimposed sanctions that left behind the deal signed in 2015.
Iran demands a total elimination of those punitive measures and their subsequent verification to return to what was sealed in the original deal with the 5+1 group (the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China, plus Germany).
