Iran Spokesman Says No Preconditions For Returning To Talks

10/5/2021

Spokesman of Iran’s foreign ministry has reiterated Tuesday that Iran has no preconditions for returning to nuclear talks and will do so when ready.

Saeed Khatibzadeh tweeted that “We will return to Vienna as soon as our internal review process is concluded. No preconditions.”

This has been Tehran’s position for the last few weeks as the United States and its European allies have been urging Iran to return to the talks aimed at restoring the 2015 nuclear agreement, JCPOA.

Khatibzadeh on Monday had told France24 channel in an interview that Iran was reviewing all issues related to six rounds of talks held from April to June in Vienna and would return to talks when it was ready.

On Saturday, Iran’s foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian had said that while in New York in September he refused to meet with US officials telling intermediaries that Washington should first unfreeze $10 billion of Iran’s funds.

However, Kharibzadeh said in his interview that "800 new unilateral and illegal" sanctions imposed on Iran after Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA should be removed.
