US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said they are preparing to lift sanctions against Iran that do not meet the terms of the nuclear deal with Iran.
Price evaluated nuclear negotiations with Iran and ongoing talks in Austria’s capital, Vienna, at the daily press briefing.
Spokesman Price stated that the US is not in a hurry to negotiate with Iran and is ready for the difficult negotiations, and stated that they wish to reach a conclusion that the interests of the USA will be protected at the end of the Vienna talks.
Price confirmed that they are preparing to lift some sanctions, saying, “We are preparing to take the necessary steps to return to the terms of the nuclear deal with Iran, including the lifting of sanctions that do not coincide with the nuclear deal.”
Stating that he will not reveal which sanctions headings they are working on at this stage, Price added that they will not give unilateral incentives before Iran returns to the terms of the agreement.
Former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA) Agreement signed between five United Nations Security Council Members in 2015 and Germany (P5 + 1) and Iran in 2018. The Joe Biden administration, which took over on January 20, announced that they would return to the Iran nuclear deal.
The first round of talks on the Iran nuclear agreement and the US return to this agreement in Vienna, the capital of Austria, had started the previous day.
