Referring to Iran’s “fourth step” in reducing its JCPOA commitments, a senior Iranian diplomat stressed that "we are still in compliance with the agreement and are only exercising our rights under paragraph 36… we are ready to return to full compliance with the agreement, provided our interests in the agreement are guaranteed”. He further indicated that “the [U.S.] policy of maximum pressure has only led to maximum resistance in Iran and we will continue to do so because if the maximum policy succeeds, we cannot live in the future anymore and we must always be under pressure”. He went on to declare that “snapback and the return of previous [UN Security Council] resolutions is a red line for Iran”.
