The visiting Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Wednesday that his country is close to reaching an agreement on the restoration of the 2015 nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“We believe that today, more than ever, we are closer to reaching an agreement and finalizing the deal in Vienna,” Amir Abdollahian told reporters after a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Faisal Mekdad and other senior officials in Damascus.
“If America adopted a realistic view and dealt realistically with this matter, we are ready to declare this agreement,” he said.
“We have made our final proposals to the United States through the EU coordinator,” he said, adding that Iran has made it clear to the American side not to cross its redlines.
Iran signed the JCPOA with world powers in 2015. However, former U.S. President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the agreement in May 2018 and reimposed unilateral sanctions on Tehran.
