NOURNEWS - On the eve of a new round of nuclear talks in Vienna, the US State Department spokesman in a detailed interview with Al Jazeera stated that the main goal of the US entry into the Vienna talks is "If the talks succeed, Iran is on the path of the best deterrent system".
Ned Price spoke about the possible timing of the agreement with Iran; This question is difficult to answer, and we have a long way to go. We believe that these negotiations are constructive, in general, the negotiations were positive, but there is still a long way to go.
A State Department spokesman described the country's readiness to lift sanctions unrelated to the UN Security Council as "difficult and lengthy" negotiations; separation of sanctions is one of the topics of discussion in Vienna. Some of the sanctions imposed by the former US administration are clearly in conflict with JCPOA, but there are also sanctions that are fully in line with JCPOA. These sanctions are often about a set of threats, and we try to hold Iran accountable for these threats. Imposition of sanctions is also one of the types of responses.
Price's interview with Al Jazeera, which is in fact an early unveiling of the White House plan in the Vienna talks, clearly outlines the US roadmap in the talks.
Dividing the set of sanctions imposed on the Iranian nation into sanctions compatible with and incompatible with JCPOA, he explicitly spoke of taking Iran to the corner of the ring and stressed that sanctions compatible with JCPOA must be maintained.
This approach clearly shows that the Democrats' objection to Trump's withdrawal from JCPOA and the strategy of exerting maximum pressure on Iran was not out of sympathy, but due to the disruption of the pressure on our country, and in fact their dispute over That is, both effective pressure must be put on Iran and, in parallel, Iran must be hampered to stop the peaceful activities of the quad-core.
Biden administration officials, who have repeatedly stressed the failure of Trump's policy of maximum pressure, are trying in other languages, and in deceptive ways to reach a text of a pre-arranged agreement under which all parties will agree to impose so-called crippling sanctions. The United States recognizes and endorses the JCPOA to make what it considers a greater victory than Trump's maximum pressure.
Another important point in this interview is that Ned Price also spoke about the forward and constructive nature of the recent talks.
The State Department spokesman's remarks make it clear that what he means by "constructiveness" is that Washington is moving closer to its core goals of simultaneously streamlining the system and leveraging sanctions against Iran. Therefore, it is natural that the "constructive" dimensions of the negotiations by the Iranian team should be clearly defined because there does not seem to be a common ground between the goals of the two sides because Iran's goal in entering the negotiations is to prove the failure of various methods on the country.
In his remarks, Ned Price spoke of the division of sanctions into three groups: green (suspended), yellow (negotiable) and red (irrevocable), and concluded that part of the sanctions and pressure should continue. Find out that Iran will definitely not accept the separation of good pressure and bad pressure, and in accordance with the law of the parliament and the guidelines of the leadership, will not accept anything but the lifting of all sanctions with any label at once.
It should be noted that the basis for Iran's entry into this round of the Vienna talks was the disarmament of the United States in pursuing a strategy of maximum pressure to achieve the complete lifting of sanctions.
The Iranian negotiating team arrived in Vienna again on Monday, and as the head of the delegation, Abbas Araghchi, told reporters, preventing the formation of erosive negotiations is one of the main principles of the Iranian delegation in the negotiations.
It is expected that this week, with the announcement of the outcome of the negotiations, the task of the two keywords "constructive dialogue" and "not to fall into the trap of erosive negotiations" will be specified.
