    Iran has “strong will” to resolve nuclear issue – President

    Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said Tehran has “strong will” to resolve issues regarding an agreement on the revival of a 2015 nuclear deal fairly if the Iranian nation’s interests are guaranteed.

    According to the Iranian presidency’s website Raisi made the remarks on Wednesday in an address to the 77th annual session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Raisi said Iran accepted an agreement in 2015 in good faith and with a solid intention, but the United States was breaking its promise and imposing sanctions, the most unprecedented sanctions in history.

    “It was Washington that left the agreement, not Tehran,’’ the president said.

    He said Iran’s negotiation logic is “adherence to commitments.

    ” Iran in July 2015 signed the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), agreeing to curb its nuclear programme in return for removing sanctions on the country.

    However, former U.

    S. President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement and re-imposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.

    The talks on the JCPOA’s revival began in April 2021 in Vienna but were suspended in March this year because of political differences between Tehran and Washington.

    The latest round of the nuclear talks was held in the Austrian capital in early August after a five-month hiatus.

    On Aug. 8, the EU put forward its final text of the draft decision on reviving the JCPOA.

    Iran and the United States later indirectly exchanged views on the EU proposal in a process that has so far failed to produce any favorable outcome.

    Iran ‘ll accept EU proposals if they meet its demands

    An Iranian diplomat said Friday that the European Union (EU) proposals for reviving a 2015 nuclear deal would be acceptable only if the fulfilment of Iran’s demands is ensured.

    This is according to the official news agency IRNA.

    The diplomat said on condition of anonymity that Iran was reviewing the proposals to see if they had “credibility’’ in meeting Iran’s various demands.

    This included resolving political claims about IAEA safeguards, removing sanctions on Iran, and having all sides guaranteed to reach a potential agreement at the end of the nuclear negotiations.

    The EU on Monday put forward a “final text” of the draft decision on reviving the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), while awaiting political decisions from the participants in the Vienna talks.

    The talks began in April 2021 in the Austrian capital but were suspended in March because of political differences between Tehran and Washington.

    The latest round of talks, which had begun on Thursday following a five-month hiatus, came to an end on Monday.

    Iran signed the JCPOA with world powers in July 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear program in return for the removal of sanctions on the country.

    However, former U.

    S. President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement and reimposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.

    Iran resumes implementation of nuke commitments if U.S. makes right decision

    Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations has said that Iran would resume full implementation of its commitments under a 2015 nuclear deal, if the U.

    S. makes the right decision.

    The official news agency IRNA reported on Thursday.

    This was said during the address of the 10th Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference in New York, Majid Takht-Ravanchi said Iran was fulfilling its commitments under the nuclear deal.

    The nuclear deal is formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 15 reports.

    But the U.

    S. pulled out of the pact in May 2018 and reimposed its unilateral sanctions on Iran as part of a maximum pressure campaign.

    It was with an aim to deprive it of the economic interests promised under the deal, the Iranian envoy said.

    He noted that following the U.

    S. pullout from the deal, Iran behaved responsibly and exercised strategic patience to preserve the agreement through “maximum resistance.

    ’’ The envoy added that since April 2021, Iran has been negotiating with the other parties with goodwill to resume the JCPOA’s full implementation.

    But the achievement of an agreement to this end has been delayed as the U.

    S. government has not yet decided to guarantee Tehran’s promised interests under the nuclear deal.

    Iran signed the JCPOA with world powers in July 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear programme in return for the removal of sanctions on the country.

    However, former U.

    S. President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement and reimposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.

    The talks on reviving the JCPOA began in April 2021 in the Austrian capital of Vienna but were suspended in March this year because of political differences between Tehran and Washington.

    Delegations from the remaining signatories to the JCPOA, as well as the United States, are currently in Vienna for a fresh round of talks on the revival of the agreement.

    Iran demands IAEA to withdraw accusations before reactivating surveillance cameras

    Iran said on Thursday that it will reactivate the surveillance cameras of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) at its nuclear sites only if IAEA withdraws its accusations against Tehran.

    Mohammad Eslami, president of the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran, was also quoted by the official news agency, IRNA as saying that Iran seeks to achieve a good agreement at the Vienna talks.

    The talks would safeguard its people’s interests, according to the top nuclear official.

    In June, the IAEA Board of Governors passed an anti-Iran resolution proposed by the U.

    S., Britain, France and Germany.

    The proposal followed the agency’s reports that Tehran had not provided technically credible explanations for uranium particles found at three undeclared sites.

    After the adoption of the IAEA resolution, Iran announced a number of countermeasures, including turning off the IAEA’s surveillance cameras at its nuclear sites.

    Speaking of the ongoing talks in Vienna to revive the 2015 deal, Eslami expressed the hope for the U.

    S. side to show goodwill and willingness to reach an agreement, and refrain from breaking its promises.

    Iran signed a nuclear deal with world powers in July 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear programme in return for the removal of sanctions on the country.

    However, former U.

    S. President, Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement and re-imposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.

    The talks on reviving the nuclear pact began in April 2021 in the Austrian capital of Vienna but were suspended in March this year because of the political differences between Tehran and Washington.

    After almost five months, delegations from the remaining signatories to the JCPOA, as well as the U.

    S., are currently in Vienna for a fresh round of talks on the revival of the agreement.

    Iran to return oil output to pre-sanctions level

    Iran says it is ready to return its crude oil production to pre-sanctions levels at the earliest possible time, the Iranian oil ministry said.

    Iranian Petroleum Minister, Javad Owji made the remarks on the sidelines of the 31st OPEC and non-OPEC Ministerial Meeting, which was held via a videoconference.

    Owji expressed the hope that major Western governments would understand correctly the world’s present sensitive and critical circumstances and adopt a logical approach toward ensuring global energy security.

    He warned that this year’s winter is very important for the entire world, Europe in particular, calling on the Europeans to think of solutions in advance.

    The minister said Iran has frequently highlighted the necessity of de-politicising the energy sector, stressing that the return of Iran’s oil to the world market can help restore balance and calm to the market.

    He added that Iran has always held that undermining global energy security and intensification of market fluctuations is a zero-sum game for all players.

    Owji’s remarks came as the delegations from the remaining signatories to a 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as well as the U.

    S. delegation, are currently in the Austrian capital of Vienna for a fresh round of the talks on reviving the agreement.

    Minister reaffirms commitment to protect Iranian rights in nuclear talks

    Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Friday that the Islamic republic will never back down on the rights of the country's people in talks on reviving a 2015 nuclear deal.

    Amir-Abdollahian made the comments in a tweet in reaction to a joint statement signed by US President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid in Jerusalem on Thursday.

    They promised to prevent Tehran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

    Iran will continue the path of sustainable development and make honorable efforts to remove sanctions forcefully and logically, Amir-Abdollahian noted.

    He said that Iran's goal is to reach a good, solid and lasting agreement in the nuclear negotiations.

    The Joint Declaration of Strategic Partnership between the United States and Israel was signed on the second day of Biden's trip to the Middle East.

    The United States has pledged not to allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon even at the cost of using all elements of its national power.

    The United States affirmed its commitment to work together with other partners "to confront Iran's aggression and destabilizing activities, whether advanced directly or through proxies."

    Iran signed the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), with world powers in July 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of sanctions against the country.

    .

    However, former US President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the deal in May 2018 and reimposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, prompting the latter to abandon some of its commitments under the pact.

    Talks on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal began in April 2021 in Vienna, but were suspended in March this year due to political differences between Tehran and Washington.

    After a three-month hiatus, talks recently resumed in Doha, the Qatari capital, but failed to reach any agreement to resolve the remaining differences.

    Iran to U.S. choose between clinching nuke deal or insisting on unilateral demands

    The Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Wednesday asked the U.S. to choose between clinching an agreement in the ongoing nuclear talks or insisting on its unilateral demands.

    “Agreement is possible only based on mutual understanding and interests,’’ Amir-Abdollahian tweeted after a phone conversation with EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell on Tuesday night.

    “We remain ready to negotiate a strong and durable agreement,’’ he said.

    He insisted that the U.S. must decide if it wanted a deal or insists on sticking to its unilateral demands.

    The conversation between Tehran and Brussels followed recent attempts by the EU to engage the U.S. and Iran in a fresh round of indirect talks.

    The talks would be over the revival of the Iranian 2015 nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

    Tehran and Washington held indirect talks last week in the Qatari capital of Doha.

    EU coordinator for the Vienna talks, Enrique Mora, mediated the negotiations to revive the JCPOA, with no agreement reached after two days.

    Iran signed the JCPOA with major countries in July 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear programme in return for removing sanctions on the country.

    However, former U.S. President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement in May 2018 and reimposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.

    The Iranian nuclear talks began in April 2021 in Vienna but were suspended in March over political differences between Tehran and Washington. (

    Iran says U.S. failed to take initiative in Doha nuclear talks

    The United States (U.S.) failed to be constructive in the latest round of the talks on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday.

    According to the statement, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a phone conversation with his French counterpart, Catherine Colonna.

    Though describing the Tuesday and Wednesday talks in Doha as positive, Amir-Abdollahian said.

    “We should wait and see how the American side will seek to use the opportunity of diplomacy.’

    “We maintain that reiterating previous positions should not replace a political initiative,’’ he said.

    Amir-Abdollahian added that Iran was serious about reaching a good and lasting agreement and had always presented its proposals and ideas in the negotiations.

    The two-day indirect talks between Iran and the U.S. in the Qatari capital last week failed to result in any agreement to settle the remaining differences.

    The failed agreement amid international efforts to restore the nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

    Iran signed the JCPOA with the world’s major countries in July 2015, agreeing to curb its nuclear programme in return for removing sanctions on the country.

    However, former U.S. President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the JCPOA in May 2018 and reimposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran, prompting the latter to drop some of its commitments under the pact.

    Talks to revive the deal began in April 2021 in Vienna but were suspended in March this year because of political differences between Tehran and Washington. (
