Rouhani: Iran ready to talk to US if it rejoins JCPOA

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tehran is prepared to hold talks with the United States if it returns to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and removes all sanctions on Iran.

"We have always believed in talks... if they lift sanctions, end the imposed economic pressure and return to the deal, we are ready to hold talks with America today, right now and anywhere," Rouhani said in a speech on national television. After the US left the nuclear deal last year and imposed sanctions on Tehran, Iran recently responded by announcing it will restart violating the agreement and enriching uranium. Tensions were heightened when an Iranian oil tanker was seized by the British military near Gibraltar.
