Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani announced on Sunday that the United States had lost in “Economic war” against his country said the sanctions were “ending”. “There is no agreement yet” and negotiations between the two countries are ongoing.
Biden promised during his presidential campaign that he would work to get the United States and Iran back to implement a comprehensive joint action plan commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, which was approved under Barack Obama. Came former Democratic president Trump campaigned in 2016 against an international pact, withdrawing the United States from the 2018 treaty despite strong opposition from European allies. Iranian and American officials are now negotiating indirectly about the future of the JCPOA in Vienna, Austria.
“With the defeat of the enemy in the economic war and the sanctions approaching an end, considering the latest events [JCPOA] The talks are hopeful the country̵7;s economy will return to balance and flourish from 2014 to 2017, Rouhani said at a meeting on Sunday, according to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency.
The Iranian president has suggested his country is coming out to lead the ongoing negotiations. But Biden’s management insisted there were no current deals.
“There’s no deal right now,” Biden National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told ABC News. This week.
“There is still a fair amount of distance to travel to close the remaining gaps and those gaps above the sanctions that the United States and other countries will reverse,” Sullivan continued. “They are above the nuclear limitations that Iran will accept in its programs to ensure they will never acquire nuclear weapons.”
The JCPOA, operated in 2016, was initially approved by the Obama administration while Biden served as vice president in coordination with the European Union, Germany, Britain, France, China and Russia. The deal offers Iran’s international investment and a easing of sanctions in exchange for the Persian Gulf countries that suppress its nuclear program. Although the United Nations nuclear watchdog regularly checks that Iran continues to comply with the treaty, But Trump also withdrew from the 2018 deal and reinstated monetary sanctions on the country.
Trump’s hatred of international deals angered European allies, who still view the JCPOA as the best way to prevent Iran from making nuclear weapons. In an effort to show its integrity, Iran remained compliant with the accord for a year after renewed U.S. sanctions action. The country then began to move away from that commitment continued until early 2020, when it said it would no longer comply with the JCPOA restrictions unless the United States reverted to it.
