US praises meeting between Iran and EU and says it is ready for ‘reciprocal measures’ – International

The United States on Thursday praised a meeting announced by the European Union with Iran and said it was ready to take “reciprocal measures” to return to the nuclear agreement.

“We obviously see this as a positive step,” said State Department spokesman Ned Price.

The European Union announced that on Friday (2) there will be a virtual dialogue between the nations that remained in the 2015 agreement and Iran, to discuss the prospects for a possible return from the USA.

President Joe Biden supports the deal that was broken by his predecessor Donald Trump, but the new government insists that for that to happen, the Iran must again comply with the pact.

“We are ready to seek a return to fulfilling our commitments to the JCPOA with the proviso that Iran will do the same,” said Price, using the formal acronym of the agreement.

The United States is talking to its partners “about how best to achieve this, including through a series of initial reciprocal measures,” said Price.

“We are looking for options to do this, including indirect talks through our European partners,” he added, saying that the Biden government has not yet spoken directly to Teer.

The Iran wants the United States to end the sanctions imposed by Trump before reversing the measures of full compliance with the agreement.
