Iran’s US envoy to Robert Malley appeared skeptical on Sunday about the prospect of a new nuclear deal coming soon.
“I’m not sure it’s imminent, it’s not just around the corner, it’s not inevitable,” Marie told the Doha Forum in Qatar.
This statement contrasts with Iran’s Supreme Leader’s foreign policy adviser, Sayed Kamal Haraj, who said at the Doha Forum that New Deal was “imminent,” but the United States called the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Concerns remained about naming it a terrorist organization.
“It is not possible to list the armed forces as a terrorist group. It is very important for Iranians to remove the IRGC from the list,” Karasi said on Sunday.
Former President Trump designated the Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization in 2019, a year after withdrawing the United States from its original nuclear deal, the Comprehensive Plan of Action.
Biden administration may allow Russia to buy Iran’s over-enriched uranium under a new nuclear deal
The Biden administration has been working to restore the agreement for months, but Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24 did not get the negotiations off the ground.
Russia demanded that trade with Iran be unaffected by Western sanctions on the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine, but Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Viklov recently suggested that these concerns had been overcome.
State Department spokesman Ned Price said earlier this week that it would be “practical” to play the same role it did at JCPOA before Russia decided to withdraw.
State Department states that Iran’s nuclear deal is not an “escape hatch” for Russian sanctions
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Sunday that the United States would discourage Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, regardless of whether the nuclear deal was restored.
“There is no sunlight between us about the basic proposal that Iran should never be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons,” Blinken said in a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. , Or not, the principle remains the same, and our commitment to it does not change. “
