Commenting on Iran reducing its compliance with the JCPOA, a U.S. diplomatic spokesperson observed that “all of these steps are reversible and the path for diplomacy remains open… As we and our partners have underscored, Iran should reverse these steps and refrain from taking others that would impact the IAEA assurances”. The spokesperson further stressed that “if Iran resumes its full compliance with the deal, we will do the same”, adding: “The deal for us, it is a floor, it’s not a ceiling, and we want to go beyond the 2015 deal, lengthen and strengthen it, and build on it with follow-on arrangements to address other areas of concern when it comes to our relationship with Iran and concern that our allies and partners share, including Iran’s ballistic missile program”.
