FM spox: US should make up mind and return to JCPOA

Tehran, IRNA -- Spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzadeh said it is now for the US to make up its mind and return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by lifting illegal sanctions and effectively implementing its final commitments.

Stressing that Iran has never left the document agreement, Khatibzadeh commented on the positions declared by the US and French foreign ministers who said they are waiting for Iran to go back the deal.

Khatibzadeh said the US and the Europeans know best that Iran made its decision by remaining in the agreement and made it survive when the US unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA and imposed illegal and oppressive sanctions against the Iranian people.

He emphasized that Iran's position has not changed since the beginning of the Vienna talks and said "We demand the lifting of US sanctions, their verification and then the cessation of compensatory measures and the resumption of Iran's commitments."

It is the opposing parties who have to make their decision, the Foreign Ministry spokesman added.
