Tehran: Final conclusion for JCPOA negotiations transmitted by tonight
Iran will provide the European coordinator with its written final conclusion of the JCPOA negotiations at midnight tonight, according to Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian announced that Tehran will present its final judgment of the conditions for the renewal of the 2015 nuclear deal on Monday night.
Amir-Abdollahian stated that Iran would transmit its written final assessment of the JCPOA negotiations to the European coordinator at midnight tonight.
The Iranian FM continued, stressing that the final stage of negotiations is presently in its preliminary stages and that a deal is possible provided the US respects Iran's red lines and guarantees that Iran would enjoy its economic benefits.
Earlier today, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said that Iran will consider the text of a deal to be finalized only when its red lines are observed and its economic benefits under the JCPOA are totally ensured, Kanaani emphasized.
The official pointed out that although advancements have been achieved in a number of areas since the Iranian delegation of negotiators saw that the negotiations are being taken seriously by other parties, they have not entirely met Tehran's demands.
Kanaani stressed that Iran would only consider the text of an agreement to be finalized when its red lines are maintained and its economic gains under the JCPOA are fully guaranteed.
In 2015, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany reached a nuclear deal with Iran in order to address the crisis around its nuclear program. In 2018, then-US President Donald Trump decided to pull out of the agreement, with Washington slapping its most sweeping sanctions ever on Tehran. The current occupant of the Oval Office, Joe Biden, has repeatedly indicated his support for reentering the nuclear deal.
Since last April, Russia, the UK, Germany, China, the US, and France have been conducting discussions with Iran in Vienna on reviving the JCPOA in its original form.
