DUBAI (Reuters – Iran’s Foreign Minister said Sunday that if America is serious about withdrawing from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement with the world powers, then President Joe Biden can just issue an “executive or” report according to the Iran state newspaper.

After Donald Trump’s withdrawal, Iran broke the global sanctions and cut Iran’s nuclear activities. This led to the collapse of the accord. Tehran was forced to violate the limitations on uranium-enrichment that the pact had established.

At the G20 summit in Rome on Saturday, leaders of the United States, Germany, France and Britain urged Iran to resume compliance with the deal in order to “avoid a dangerous escalation”, saying they wanted a negotiated solution.

Hossein Amirabdollahian, Iran’s Foreign Minister, stated that it was enough for Biden (to issue an executive order tomorrow) and the U.S. to announce their rejoining of the pact starting at the point his predecessor left.

There is no reason to negotiate if Washington is serious about the agreement.

Tehran said that its nukes since Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement were reversible “if Washington lifts all sanctions in a verified process”.

The Islamic Republic’s nuclear negotiator stated that talks between Iran and the world powers to save the agreement, which began in April, will resume at the beginning of November. Since June’s election of Ebrahim Raisi, Iran’s hardline cleric, the talks have been in limbo.

Worried about Iran enriching uranium at a bomb-grade level, Western countries have repeatedly asked Tehran for resumption of talks. They said that the diplomatic window wouldn’t be closed forever.

“Washington would like to maintain a significant portion of Trump’s sanctions against Iran. Amirabdollahian declared that it was not acceptable for Iran to continue this type of sanctions.

Iran claims it has no intention of developing nuclear weapons.

Antony Blinken (U.S. Secretary-of-State) stated Sunday that Washington was in complete lockstep with France and Britain on Iran’s return to the agreement. It was unclear if Tehran wanted to rejoin the talks “meaningfully”.

The U.S. and Iranian disagreements about which actions should be taken are a major obstacle to restoring the agreement. It is important to determine what Iran will accept as nuclear limits and how Washington will eliminate them.

Apart from requesting the lifting of Trump’s era sanctions (including those related to Iran’s human rights record and support for terrorist activities), Tehran also demands assurances that Washington won’t renege upon the agreement again.
