In an interview with IRNA news agency, published on Friday, the foreign minister said that his government is serious about reaching a strong and sustainable deal.
He pointed out that at the present stage, the US side speaks of good intentions and willingness, but he pointed out that this must be translated into practical actions.
He warned that Iran is not negotiating for the sake of negotiating, but to reach the point where sanctions are lifted and the necessary economic benefits are achieved for this nation.
The agreement on Iran’s nuclear program signed in 2015 provided for a gradual and conditional lifting of international sanctions imposed on Iran in exchange for a guarantee that Tehran would not develop atomic weapons.
The deal was reached in Vienna on July 14, 2015, between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia and China) plus Germany.
But it was broken in 2018 when then-US President Donald Trump reinstated coercive measures against Iran. Since then, the Iranian government has reiterated its interest in returning to it as long as the established guarantees are met.
