US Says Onus Now On Iran To Agree To Nuclear Deal

3/22/2022

US State Department said on Tuesday that the onus is now on Iran on whether to enter into a mutual return to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, JCPOA.

Department spokesman Ned Price reiterated in his daily briefing on Friday that a return to the deal remained uncertain and was not imminent, despite optimism in recent weeks that indirect talks between Iran and the United States could soon produce an agreement. He made a similar statement on Monday saying a deal is not imminent.

The negotiation in Vienna that started more than 11 months ago have ended without a result, although all sides said only one or two issues remained to be agreed.

However, one major issue is Iran’s demand to remove its Revolutionary Guard from the US Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) list. The Biden Administration might have made an offer to Tehran in regard with the FTO listing and awaits a response.
