Iran’s lead negotiator in Vienna indicated that the U.S. side “announced their readiness to lift a big part of their sanctions. Of course, in our opinion, it is not complete yet, and that is why the negotiations will continue until all our demands are met”. “If our demands are met”, he added, “Iran is also quite serious about returning to the full JCPOA implementation”. The official also maintained that “we are trying to reach a final conclusion as soon as possible with regards to JCPOA but we will not rush unnecessarily, we will not rush to reduce the accuracy, and we will not allow the negotiations to be protracted, so that we will do our job and responsibility carefully”.
