Biden has to decide on nuclear deal - Tehran

United States President Joe Biden has to make a decision on whether Washington wants to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA or the Iran nuclear deal) or not, Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian (pictured) pointed out on Thursday.

Tehran wants a lasting deal but is not convinced that it would gain economically from a return to the JCPOA and the Biden administration has to prove it is different from the Trump government, Iran's top diplomat stressed during the World Economic Forum in Davos. Tehran has put forward new initiatives recently but the White House had shown only inaction since, he noted.

Amir-Abdollahian went on to accuse Washington of "sanctions mania" against the Islamic Republic and underscored that sanctions have to be "lifted in an effective way." He also claimed that the US foreign policy is a "hostage" to Israel.
