Iran: Only lasting JCPOA agreement acceptable

Tehran will accept only a lasting and reliable agreement on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), not a temporary solution, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh stated at a press conference on Monday.

"What is now happening in Vienna is the efforts by all parties to reach a sustainable result. […] We have reached the points that will show us whether the other side has the necessary resolve or not," he said. "All of us must make sure that the US' return should happen with verifications and receiving assurances, as a cycle of removal of sanctions must also take place."

Back in December, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani noted what he described as "good progress" in the negotiations over the removal of sanctions on his country.
