Iran: Any New Sanctions Are Bound to Fail
Iranian Government Spokesperson Ali Rabii asserts that the current government has achieved all of its responsibilities for the sanctions to be lifted.
Ali Rabii, Iranian government spokesperson announced during a weekly press conference that "it's been proven in the past years that any sanctions on Iran are bound to fail, and new sanctions will result in nothing but the repetition of past failures."
"We support the return of all parties of the JCPOA in accordance with the deal, without any changes to the deal," Rabii added that Iran has "no plans to add any other matters to the negotiations. Until the US and the 4+1 abide by all of their commitments in the deal, it is meaningless to talk or even think of further negotiations."
Russia's PR representative to Vienna-based International Organizations claims discussions on resurecting the nuclear accord may resume in 10 days, if not sooner.
In regards to Iran's attempts in combating the Coronavirus, Rabii pointed out that Iran's health network can currently vaccinate approximate 500-600 thousand individuals per day.
Through the COVAX program, Iran received over a million AstraZeneca doses from Japan, and the Japanese embassy in Tehran reported that doses were handed to the Iranian Health Ministry via the UN.
