Iran announced on Monday that the United States administration “verbally agreed” to two Iranian demands for restoring the 2015 nuclear accord.
At a press conference in Tehran, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stated, “They must adopt a pragmatic approach to guarantees.”
“Regarding the two remaining issues, they have demonstrated relative flexibility verbally, but this must be reflected in the text,” he continued.
The top diplomat stated that Tehran would provide its answer to the draft document proposed by the European Union to save the 2015 nuclear agreement by midnight on Monday.
“We have instructed them to obey our red lines… We have shown sufficient adaptability… We do not want to reach an agreement that fails to materialize in 40 days, two months, or three months,” he stressed.
Iran, the United States, China, Russia, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the European Union signed the nuclear deal in 2015.
The United States withdrew from the accord in 2018 under the administration of former President Donald Trump.
Under the terms of the agreement, Tehran pledged to limit its nuclear activity to civilian uses, and in exchange, the international community agreed to lift economic sanctions against Iran.
Iran stopped complying with the nuclear deal after the United States withdrew from the historic deal and reimposed sanctions.
