Speaking at a television cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Rouhani said the ball “is now in the American court.”
“If Iran returns to Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal, we too will fully honor our commitments under the agreement,” he said in reference to Trump “that the era of a dictator came to an end and today his inauspicious rule It’s the last day. ” ”
Along with Biden – who was a member of the Obama administration who negotiated the original deal – entered office on Thursday, hopefully for a higher level.
At Wednesday’s meeting, Rouhani removed Trump from office, saying his four years in office “bear no fruit other than injustice and corruption and create problems for his people and the world.”
What was in the nuclear deal?
The deal in Vienna was signed by Iran and six other countries in 2015 after two years of intense negotiations by the Obama administration.
Under the deal, the Iranian government agreed on three key things: reducing the number of centrifuges in the country by two-thirds, reducing the rich uranium reserves and reducing ongoing enrichment at 3.67%, sufficient for energy provision Amount but not enough to make nuclear bomb
In addition, Iran was required to limit uranium research and development and allow inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to have definitive access to its nuclear facilities.
In exchange for its compliance, all nuclear-related sanctions on Iran were lifted in January 2016, linking the country’s stagnant economy with international markets.
The then-candidate, written in September, wrote, “I will give Tehran a credible path to diplomacy.” “If Iran strictly complies with the nuclear deal, the US will resume the agreement as a starting point for follow-up.”
