Iran: Removing sanctions only option

Tehran will not accept anything less than the removal of the sanctions Western countries imposed on it, and beyond what was agreed in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh (pictured) told IRNA on Tuesday.

His statement comes just after the country's top diplomat Hossein Amir-Abdollahian told United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres that his nation has entered the latest round of negotiations about the JCPOA "with goodwill and seriousness" and with the focus "on reaching a good agreement" despite the "disloyalty and inaction" from the United States and European signatories of the deal.

Earlier this week, Russia described the freshest talks about the implementation of the JCPOA as having a successful start. Meanwhile, the US said its goal is to have both Washington and Tehran back to the deal.
