Blinken: Negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program cannot continue indefinitely

In 2015, Iran pledged to curb its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said Thursday that talks on Iran’s nuclear program “cannot go on indefinitely.” However, he said, Washington is currently “fully prepared” for negotiations. This was reported by Agence France-Presse.

“We have an obligation to diplomacy. But this process cannot continue indefinitely. We are waiting for what is or is not ready to do, and we are still fully prepared to return to Vienna and continue negotiations,” Blinken said during his visit to Kuwait. On the Iranian side of the field.

The government of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and representatives of five countries (Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia) have met in Vienna since last April with the aim of achieving the United States’ return to the 2015 nuclear deal.

However, a deal is unlikely until early August, when newly elected President Ebrahim Raisi will take power in Iran, according to AFP.

Raisi said in June that the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers would not constrain Tehran’s foreign policy.

In 2015, Iran pledged to curb its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions. The United States is only indirectly involved in the negotiations.

Former US President Donald Trump withdrew his country from the agreement in 2018, and the United States imposed sanctions on Iran. Trump’s successor, Joe Biden, has indicated that the United States is ready to return to the deal.
