Tehran, Iran | Xinhua | Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Tuesday questioned Washington’s readiness to return to the Iran nuclear deal, or the JCPOA, and criticized its two-faced actions concerning the nuclear talks.
“The White House calls for negotiations with Iran and claims to be ready to return to the JCPOA. Yet it simultaneously imposes new sanctions on Iranian individuals & entities,” Amir Abdollahian wrote on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday.
“We are closely examining Mr. Biden’s behavior,” he added.
On Oct. 29, the U.S. Department of Treasury issued sanctions against four individuals and two companies related to the unmanned aerial vehicles program of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.
The upcoming Vienna talks should be “on the basis of respect for mutual interests,” Amir Abdollahian stressed, noting that “the purpose of negotiations is not talking for the sake of talking, but to achieve tangible results.”
