Iran’s diplomatic spokesperson announced that “this is not a good time for holding an unofficial meeting [between the U.S. and other JCPOA participants] on the accord as proposed by the EU foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell. There has been no change in the U.S.’s stances and behaviour, and the Biden administration has not only failed to abandon Trump’s failed policy of maximum pressure, but has also failed to declare its commitment to the implementation of all its obligations under the JCPOA and the UN Security Council Resolution 2231”. The White House stated that “while we are disappointed at Iran’s response, we remain ready to reengage in meaningful diplomacy to achieve a mutual return to compliance with JCPOA commitments”.
