Deal needs strong US guarantee: Abdullahian

The deal needs strong guarantees from the US Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdullahian said his country is reviewing the European Union’s draft proposal to sign a deal to revive the nuclear deal. However, he also commented that a stronger guarantee is needed from the US side to sign the final agreement.

Abdullahian, who is visiting Russia, made the comments at a joint press conference after meeting with the host country’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow on Wednesday.

Iran’s foreign minister said, ‘We have received the draft proposal of the EU reviewed by America. My colleagues are reviewing it as soon as possible.’

Abdullahian said that since the United States has easily pulled out of the nuclear agreement once before, the agreement should have stronger content and guarantees so that it cannot easily repeat the same action again.

Through the nuclear deal signed in 2015, the US and Western countries lifted sanctions against Iran. In return, Iran imposed restrictions on its nuclear program. But in 2018, then US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from the agreement. As a result, Washington and the nuclear deal collapsed by reimposing sanctions on Iran.

Iran has been in talks with the West in Vienna since April last year to re-enact that accord and bring the US into it.

Donald Trump has announced that he will run on the Republican ticket in the next US presidential election. In addition, several leaders of the Republican Party have announced that if the Biden administration makes an agreement to re-enforce the nuclear deal with Iran, the Republican president will cancel it when he comes to power. For these reasons, Iran wants to include strong clauses and guarantees in a potential deal that would prevent a US administration from pulling out, or that Iran’s interests would be protected if it did.
