Iranian Foreign Minister Amirabdollahian maintained that the Raisi administration “considers negotiation as an effective tool of diplomacy and we will not distance ourselves from [JCPOA] negotiations in any way… but we believe that negotiations for negotiations’ sake will not benefit the Iranian nation and other sides”. Relatedly, Iran’s diplomatic spokesperson affirmed that “Iran will not wait forever for the U.S. to put pressure on the Iranian people with the illegal leverage of sanctions, and this window will not be open for Washington forever… If verified and exactly Iran’s interests are served under the JCPOA, Iran will fulfill its obligations as a committed party”.
