Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs, Abbas Araghchi stressed that Iran's return to full implementation of 2015 nuclear deal is condition on the country's legal demands, such as oil sales and banking ties, fully met.

"When the Europeans, including France, persuade US President Donald Trump with their initiative, it means that 'maximum pressure' has failed to achieve its aims and there is a division. They should fulfill Iran's demands because we have said that Iran's demands in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), specifically regarding oil sales and banking ties, should be met for us to return to full implementation of the deal," Araghchi added.

Mentioning G7 summit and Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif's visit to France, the official said, "French President, Emmanuel Macron had held meeting with Trump on the sideline of G7 summit and the American side has shown some flexibility in issuing waivers for Iran's oil sales".

Elsewhere in his remarks, Araghchi insisted that US' policy against Iran and the JCPOA has isolated the country.

"This is the very split that has opened up in America's maximum pressure policy and the very achievement that Iran is obtaining in its maximum resistance policy," he highlighted.

"Iran's foreign policy has been successful in resistance against US' maximum pressure policy," Araghchi added.
