Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei remarked that “if they want Iran to return to its JCPOA commitments, the U.S. should remove all sanctions in action. After they have done this, we will check if the sanctions have truly been removed. Once this is done, we will resume our JCPOA commitments”. He further contended that “the U.S. and the three European countries do not have the right to set terms and conditions because they have violated all of their JCOPA commitments”. The following day, IRGC Commander Hossein Salami described sanctions as a “major historical opportunity” which had resulted in “cutting all dependencies”.
