Nuclear: lifting sanctions is Iran’s « priority »

The lifting of US sanctions is Iran’s priority, its Foreign Minister said on Monday, December 27, a few hours before the resumption in Vienna of the 8th round of negotiations on Iranian nuclear power. Delegations broke up temporarily last week after several days of discussions « hard and intenseAccording to Tehran, noting some technical progress.

«Today, a new round of talks opens. The question of guarantees and verification« Of the lifting of American sanctions if Washington reinstates the agreement »is on the agenda», Declared the Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs, quoted by the official news agency IRNA. « The most important thing for us is to reach a point where we can verify that Iranian oil will be sold easily and without any limits, that the money of this oil will be transferred in foreign currencies to Iranian bank accounts, and that we will be able to benefit from all the incomes of the different economic sectorsAdded Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Delegations from Iran and countries still members of the 2015 agreement (Russia, China, Great Britain, France and Germany) are due to meet later today. The United States is participating in the negotiations indirectly. The agreement made it possible to ease the sanctions imposed on Tehran, in exchange for restricting its nuclear activities and ensuring the peaceful nature of its program. However, after his withdrawal in 2018, former US President Donald Trump reinstated tough sanctions against Tehran that affected several economic sectors, including the export of oil. « We advise all negotiating participants to come to Vienna with a will to get a good deal.Iranian Foreign Affairs spokesperson Said Khatibzadeh said Monday, stressing Tehran’s refusal to « waste time and energy».
