– The participants will discuss the prospects for a possible re-entry from the US into the nuclear agreement and how to ensure full and effective implementation of the agreement for all parties, it is stated in an EU statement.
The State Department in Washington warns that it is positive about the meeting and will follow it closely.
“Of course we welcome this as a positive step, and it is precisely because we have made it clear for several weeks now that we are ready to return to our commitments in the nuclear deal, if Iran also does the same,” said ministry spokesman Ned Price.
– It is a positive step, especially if it moves the ball forward on the mutual point of complying with the agreement and which we have been talking about for several weeks now, he says.
The EU had proposed that the United States also attend the meeting, but it was rejected by Iran.
President Joe Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the agreement in 2018. He also introduced new sanctions against Iran. Iran responded by violating parts of the agreement. Iran refuses to abide by the agreement as long as US sanctions last.
