UK, France and Germany urge Iran to revive nuclear deal ‘as long as possible’

Britain, France and Germany said yesterday that Iran should seize the diplomatic opportunity and strike the deal to revive the 2015 nuclear deal “for as long as possible”.

“There is a workable agreement on the table from March 2022, which will bring Iran into compliance with JCPOA commitments and the United States back into the deal.

On behalf of the foreign ministries of the three countries, in a joint statement, “Now. We are ready to make the deal.”

“We express our full support for the efforts of the JCPOA Coordinator to restore it. Iran should seize this opportunity to conclude the agreement, while that was possible. Unfortunately, we understand that in the meeting that ended yesterday in Doha, Iran again refused to take advantage of the opportunity and make strange new demands and unrealistic.”

Iran and the United States on Wednesday concluded two days of indirect talks in the Qatari capital, Doha, without reaching any breakthrough.

Iran insists that the United States should write off organizations linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and provide guarantees that future U.S. administrations will not withdraw from the deal.

“We call on Iran to stop and reverse its nuclear escalation, return to full cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, and seize without further delay the offer on the table, which will benefit the Iranian people and the Iranian nation,” the statement read.

But Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said he believed the talks were “positive” and that an agreement could still be reached.
