Iranian MPs urge stronger guarantees for Iran in Vienna talks
Iranian lawmakers have insisted that the Iranian government's red lines be respected.
Nearly 200 Iranian lawmakers urged the administration to press for stronger guarantees during the Vienna talks to resurrect the 2015 nuclear deal, insisting that the country's red lines be respected during the talks.
More than 190 parliamentarians have signed the letter, which urges President Ebrahim Raisi to ensure that the parties involved in the Vienna talks provide stronger guarantees to Iran.
According to MP Sara Fallahi, lawmakers have insisted that the Iranian government's red lines be respected and that national interests be prioritized in nuclear negotiations.
The Vienna talks, which were supposed to resurrect the JCPOA, were halted in March for an undetermined period of time, despite reports that they were in the "final stages".
The United States, which is blamed for the current stalemate, is hesitant to take confidence-building measures.
Iranian officials have repeatedly stated that the US must remove all illegal sanctions against the Islamic Republic in a verifiable manner and provide assurances that a new US administration will not violate the JCPOA again before it can rejoin the agreement.
Former US President Donald Trump unilaterally exited the JCPOA in May 2018. As part of his "maximum pressure" campaign, he imposed additional sanctions on Iran under other pretexts unrelated to the nuclear file.
