Iran says still prepared for achieving good nuclear agreement

Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says Tehran is still prepared for conclusion of a good agreement on potential revival of the Islamic Republic's 2015 nuclear deal with world countries.

"The Islamic Republic is ready for conclusion of a good, strong, and durable agreement," the top diplomat told the European Union's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell during a phone call on Wednesday.

Amir-Abdollahian said, "We have relayed our opinion to the American side through the European Union, with a constructive and forward-looking approach."

Former US president Donald Trump unilaterally left the nuclear deal that is officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in May 2018 and re-imposed the anti-Iran sanctions that the deal had lifted. He placed additional sanctions on Iran under other pretexts not related to the nuclear case as part of his "maximum pressure" campaign.

Addressing Iran's ongoing collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Amir-Abdollahian also said the Islamic Republic was working with the United Nations' nuclear agency towards realization of "an agreement over good and strong cooperation" between the two sides.

Speaking alongside his visiting Syrian counterpart Faisal al-Mekdad in Tehran earlier in the day, Amir-Abdollahian had said that an Iranian delegation was set to visit Vienna to hold talks with the IAEA's officials on the remaining technical issues related to Tehran’s nuclear program.

"We will dispatch an Iranian delegation to Vienna in the coming days” to start talks and strengthen cooperation with the IAEA officials, he had added.
