On Sunday, Iran has eliminated an informal session with America and European powers to dig out ways to revive its nuclear accord with primary powers. Tehran insisted the United States must annul all its unilateral sanctions.
Iran declined an informal meeting
According to media agencies of Iran, Saeed Khatibzadeh (spokesperson of Foreign Ministry) said that considering the recent statements and actions by the U.S. and three major European powers, Iran doesn’t consider this the time to conduct an informal gathering with these nations, which had previously suggested by the European Union foreign policy chief.
Iranian regulators had described that the country was evaluating an offer by Josep Borrell (E.U. foreign policy chief) to conduct an informal summit with other allies to the nuclear agreement and the U.S., which reapplied sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran after Donald Trump (then-President) eliminated the agreement in 2018.
Neither of them wants to take the first step
The new administration of the United States and Iran have been in a conflict over who should take the initial step to activate the agreement. Moreover, both sides want to fix the deal, but they are looking for each other.
Tehran wants America should remove sanctions first, but on the other hand, the United States says Iran must first return to obedience with the agreement, which Iran has been progressively breaking.
Mohammad Javad Zarif, Foreign Minister of Iran, came up with a potential choreography on 1st February to overcome the impasse.
