Iran's lead negotiator Ali Baqeri Kani announced that in detailed draft documents given to signatories of the nuclear deal, Iran explicitly said that it wants the complete removal of all unilateral and cruel US sanctions.
“Sanctions include all of those that were imposed under former US President Donald Trump as part of the maximum pressure campaign, should be completely lifted,” Iran demanded.
“Iran has called for the verifiable removal of sanctions and guarantees that the US will not commit further violations,” Bagheri Kani said while pointing that the ball is now in the US court.
In a relevant message, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said the top priority in JCPOA talks for Iran is sanctions’ removal.
Prior to that, last Monday and while speaking to reporters after Vienna talks, the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani, said the previous rounds of Vienna talks were only a “draft”.
Also, in a separate remark, Iranian Foreign Minister said that any agreement achieved in Vienna talks should guarantee implementation of the other sides’ undertakings based on the nuclear deal.
