Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told Iran’s parliament that “we are not in a hurry, but if the U.S. fulfills its commitments and lifts sanctions, it can return to the table of [the] JCPOA”. Relatedly, Iran’s government spokesperson remarked that “the new U.S. administration should not act selectively when it comes to compensating for… the stain of shame left by the previous administration”. “The U.S. will soon have a fresh opportunity to sincerely and unconditionally return to its obligations under UN Security Council Resolution 2231 and open new horizons for its relations with Iran and the international community”, he added.
