Today, the United States describes the indirect dialogue with Iran in Vienna as a constructive and potentially useful dialogue, which is a step forward in reaffirming its support for the 2015 Iran nuclear program agreement that Washington left three years ago.
“These discussions in Vienna, even though we did not meet directly with the Iranians, are, as we said, a welcome step. This is a constructive step, for trying to determine what the Iranians are willing to do for Iran, This may be a useful step. Reaching an agreement, as a result, we may need to do something to get us to re-reach an agreement,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price told reporters at the daily meeting.
White House spokesperson Jen Paski said on Tuesday that the Biden administration expects that during the negotiations to renew the 2015 nuclear agreement, its policy towards Iran will not change. The deal has been dealt with by former U.S. President Donald T. Donald Trump terminates.
The United States and Iran will conduct indirect negotiations in Vienna this week to restore the agreement.
Psaki said: “We have made it clear that we are currently not taking or expecting to take any steps. We will allow negotiations to continue.”
The chief negotiator of Iran’s nuclear program told national television on Tuesday that Iran and the international forces will continue to negotiate the resumption of the agreement.
Abbas (Abbas Araqchi) said: “The dialogue in Vienna is constructive. Our next meeting will be held on Friday.”
He added that Tehran will not stop its uranium enrichment to a purity of 20% in exchange for the unfreezing of billions of dollars that have been blocked for other reasons due to the 2016 sanctions imposed by the United States on Iran.
