At a cabinet session, President Rouhani stated that “in the recent days, the Americans have recognised the importance of another part of the deal and understood that if the JCPOA continues until next year, all arms embargos will be lifted”. He reiterated that “we are negotiating with neighbouring countries and others in the world to strengthen our relations. But if we do not achieve our goals after the second 60 days, we will definitely begin the third step [in reducing JCPOA compliance]. We will also wait another 60 days for reaching a logical, balanced solution”.
