USA 'open' to Iran's suggestion of 'wider nuclear deal roadmap'

Iranian political deputy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran Abbas Araghchi, and German Secretary General of the European External Action Service Helga Maria Schmid attend a meeting of the Joint Commission on Iran's nuclear progr

However, after more than two months in office, POTUS still has not succeeded in organising talks with Tehran to discuss the issue, instead issuing demands for Iran. "The Iranian delegation will not have any talks with the U.S. delegation at any level", Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said.

Representatives of China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and Iran - the countries still party to the agreement after the USA left - will attend Friday's meeting, according to an European Union statement.

"If that's what Iran wants to talk about, we are happy to talk about it", the official added.

"No Iran-US meeting. Unnecessary", he wrote on Twitter. The source added at the same time, that United States experts are "quite likely" to still come to Vienna and "stay somewhere nearby".

"In line with the joint ministerial statement of 21 December participants recognised the prospect of a full return of the the JCPOA, and underlined their readiness to positively address this in a joint effort", the European External Action Service (EEAS) said in a statement.

On the same day, an anonymous source allegedly familiar with the negotiating process, told Iran's PressTV that Tehran had stressed in a virtual meeting with other JCPOA signatories that it will not return to nuclear accord compliance unless the United States lifts all sanctions.

Russia's permanent representative to worldwide organisations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, confirmed the information.

Tehran has said that it would resume its own compliance with the JCPOA once the lifting of sanctions has been verified.

The commission will meet relevant experts to "to clearly identify sanctions lifting and nuclear implementation measures". Unable to reap the economic benefits of the deal, Iran has argued that it should not be bound by the limits it puts on its nuclear program, and has gradually breached its commitments.

"Discussions were quite businesslike and will continue".

China has remained the top, if diminished, buyer of Iranian oil since Trump imposed unilateral USA sanctions in 2018 to warn all countries against buying from the clerical state.

In response, Iran began exceeding uranium enrichment limits set in the accord.

Regarding the agreement between Iran and China, the current USA sanctions against Iran remain in place and the U.S. will consider any attempt to evade sanctions, he also claimed.
