China News Service, May 7th, according to the US Chinese website, on the 6th local time, a senior official of the US State Department stated that the US and Iran may return to the track of re-compliance with the Iran nuclear agreement signed in 2015 within a few weeks. .
This is the most optimistic signal sent by the Biden administration so far, indicating that the United States' return to the Iran nuclear agreement is just around the corner.
The senior official, who asked not to be named, said that it is not only possible but also feasible for the United States and Iran to reach an agreement before mid-June, that is, before Iran’s presidential election.
The official said that progress may also be made in the new round of negotiations on the Iranian nuclear agreement that began in Vienna on the 7th local time.
However, the official reminded that the United States and Iran still have differences on the terms of the agreement, and he did not provide specific details.
While senior officials of the US State Department are actively predicting, Iran’s chief negotiator urges all parties to be cautious.
Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister said in Vienna on the 6th: “We do face severe challenges, but we agree on the path that must be taken. We still have a long way to go and it is impossible to determine or predict a timetable. There are still serious challenges. The problem must be resolved through negotiation."
In July 2015, Iran reached an Iran nuclear agreement with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.
According to the agreement, Iran promised to restrict its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions against Iran by the international community.
In May 2018, the US government unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement, and subsequently restarted and added a series of sanctions against Iran.
Since May 2019, Iran has gradually suspended the implementation of certain provisions of the Iran nuclear agreement, but promised that the measures taken are "reversible."
In order to discuss the issue of the resumption of implementation of the agreement between the United States and Iran, a meeting of the parties involved in the Iranian nuclear agreement will be held in Vienna in early April 2021.
US President Biden has promised to rejoin the nuclear agreement, but also called for a "longer and stronger" agreement to be negotiated later.
