The US government must – unconditionally – rejoin the JCPOA if it wants to be a legitimate player

On June 26, I gave this comment to Iran’s PressTV concerning the drawn-out negotiations in Vienna. The US under Trump left the nuclear agreement – the JCPOA – unilaterally and all it has to do is, simply, to rejoin it unilaterally.

It cannot have a legitimate role standing outside shouting in its demands on Iran.

Iran’s position is clear and fair: lift the sanctions, stick to the JCPOA and Iran will immediately get back into full compliance.

Indeed, what could there to talk about? – Oberg asks.

Here is the link to the interview.

NOTE
Incidentally, I found out a couple of days later that what I say above is also what official China says (July 1, 2021).
