An Iranian government spokesperson indicated that “we have not had any talks or contacts with the new U.S. administration so far, and we are still awaiting the official positions of the U.S. administration to clarify on its return to its JCPOA obligations and on the lifting of the illegal sanctions”. He further asserted that “the U.S. will not have time forever, and the opportunity is very limited, not only for the U.S. but also for the European members of the JCPOA”. He also urged the Biden administration “to free the transfer of Iran’s own foreign exchange resources to fight the coronavirus and for health and food, and lift banking sanctions quickly”.
