Tasnim: Indirect nuclear talks between US, Iran fruitless
Washington wants a deal with no benefits to Iran.
Iranian news agency Tasnim reported that the two-day round talks on the nuclear deal have come to a conclusion. The talks were indirectly held between Washington and Iran with mediation from Europe in the Qatari capital, Doha. However, the talks ended without much progress.
According to well-informed sources, the talks have concluded in Doha without much progress due to Washington's "insistence on its positions that do not take into account Iranian interests," explaining that "during negotiations yesterday and today, Iran reiterated that a firm agreement was reached."
The American side kept insisting on its text in the 7th round of talks in Vienna, which blocked Iran from enjoying the economic benefits of the agreement.
"Due to the weakness of the Biden administration and its inability to make a final decision, the Doha meeting did not have a significant impact on the progress of negotiations," they said, noting that the US is seeking to revive the nuclear agreement only to limit Iran's nuclear capabilities.

Iran will stand firmly against excessive demands in Vienna: FM
Two weeks back, while answering questions about the latest developments in Iran's nuclear program, Iran's Foreign Minister said that Tehran will take a firm stance against excessive demands related to the Viena Talks.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stated that whenever Iran was treated in a logical way by the other side, it offered initiatives and ideas on a logical basis.
Meanwhile, every time the other side had excessive demands, Iran made use of its tools and power to deliver the message that the interests and welfare of the Iranian people were the priority.
"While emphasizing the need to completely protect the rights of the country in the international arena, our people expect us to do so while respecting all the red lines," the top diplomat explained.
