The United States is concerned about Iran’s commitment to revert to an international nuclear deal that lifted international sanctions against Tehran in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear activities and international inspections.
Talks are underway in Vienna between the signatories of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the 2015 agreement negotiated under former President Obama.

While Iran participates in indirect talks with JCPOA participants – namely European, Chinese and Russian interlocutors – it has rejected offers of direct communication with the United States.

This made the talks “slower” and “more complicated,” a senior US official said at a briefing with reporters on Friday, and reported that Iran’s seriousness was in question.

“The question remains whether the seriousness of the goal and the intention to return to compliance that the United States has shown the United States to demonstrate will be reciprocal on Iran’s part,” the official said.

“We have seen signs of it, but certainly not enough, and there are still question marks as to whether Iran has the will to do what it takes”, to return to respect for the agreement .

The US negotiating team in Vienna is led by Special Envoy for Iran Robert Malley and talks began on Tuesday.

The United States proposes that Iran, which has violated the terms of the agreement relating to nuclear activity and limiting international inspections, take its own steps to return to compliance with the agreement.

The Vienna talks aim to find a solution to “mutual respect”. Still, Iranian officials insist that the United States take the first step, ensuring that the sanctions are lifted.

The senior State Department official called Tehran’s request unclear about what the verified sanctions lift means in practice, and presented it as an example of the difficulty of indirect conversations.

“We think it would be better if we could sit down with the Iranians,” the official said. “We’re not going to pay the price and so if they don’t want to meet with us, too bad… it’s just going to be much more difficult for them to get what they say they want, which is a mutual return to each other. conformity. “

The official called the talks “the first step in the first phase” of a potential return to the JCPOA. Talks are expected to resume in Vienna next week.

The European Union, which is chairing talks between the JCPOA signatories, said in a statement on Friday that all participants underlined their commitment to preserve the nuclear deal and “discussed modalities to ensure the return to full implementation. and effective ”.

A previous statement noted that the discussions were “constructive and results-oriented exchanges”.
