Iran’s diplomatic spokesperson indicated that “until now, Iran hasn’t received any message, either direct or indirect, from the new U.S. administration”. “Tehran is not planning to dispatch any messages to the U.S. either, especially given the fact that it was Washington that decided to leave [the JCPOA]”, he was cited as indicating. “The problem is that Washington is not willing to budge. Sanctions imposed by former U.S. President Donald Trump are still in place, Iranian diplomats in New York City remain restricted in their movements and the current administration has not taken any steps to punish those responsible for the murder of… Qassem Soleimani”.
