White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan indicated that “our first and highest priority is to get back to the table and get back to a deal that does, in fact, place a lid on Iran’s nuclear program”. Emphasising U.S. coordination with “European partners, particularly with the E3… to have a united front after the four years of division on the Iran policy in the last administration”, Sullivan maintained that “we will be sending clear messages to the Iranians… that this window is not unlimited; that we do need to see a return to diplomacy and progress at the diplomatic table; and that we, of course, retain all other options to be able to deal with this program as necessary”.
