Next Iranian gov’t not to change framework of nuclear talks: MP
Tehran, IRNA – Noting that Iran will continue with negotiations until its objectives are met, Abolfazl Amouei, a senior Member of Parliament, said on Saturday that the framework of the nuclear talks will remain unchanged and these policies are not expected to change by the formation of the new government.
Amouei, also a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, referred to six rounds of nuclear talks already held in Vienna and said that Iran has been negotiating based on policies outlined by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei which call for the lifting of all sanctions, and Iran’s effective verification and stresses that Iran’s measures would be taken after the other side takes its measures.
He noted that the talks will continue between Iran and the G4+1 – Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany – that are the remaining participants to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal better known as the JCPOA.
The US withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018 and then signaled readiness to rejoin the deal in 2021, the lawmaker said, adding that some conditions have been set for the US side to rejoin the JCPOA.
He said that Iran and the G4+1 are considering the measures that the United States needs to take in order to be allowed to rejoin the talks.
Noting that the present negotiations are way away from Iran’s expectations, Amouei said that as long as there is no fundamental change in the US policies and words have not turned into action, the negotiations cannot be expected to yield fruit.
