Head of Iran's AEOI: Stop allegations, lift sanctions
The head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization states its demands: to drop the allegations and lift the crippling sanctions.
The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) - Mohammad Eslami - stressed the need to cease the plethora of accusations and allegations made against the Iranian nuclear program, and to lift the sanctions.
"The nuclear agreement must have the commitment of all parties," Eslami said in exclusive statements to Al Mayadeen. "Tehran is committed to the 2015 agreement, provided that others abide by its terms, foremost of which is the lifting of sanctions."
Yesterday, Monday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said, "The political positions taken by Washington differ from the messages it sends to us. However, there is effective activity regarding the nuclear agreement, and there is no political stagnation in the transfer of opinions."

Within the same context, just yesterday, US special envoy to Iran, Robert Malley, said that the administration of US President Joe Biden is "not going to waste time on nuclear talks with Tehran."
Iran asserts that it is serious about reaching a nuclear agreement and that it will not hesitate to reach a "good, strong and sustainable" agreement. However, Tehran demands guarantees that the United States will not withdraw from the agreement again, and also that the IAEA close up on its baseless allegations.
Yesterday, Monday, Malley said the Biden administration is not currently looking to revive the JCPOA, citing Iran's riots and its relations with Russia amid the war in Ukraine as reasons.
