​Iranian Foreign Minister Amir Abdollahian criticized Washington for raising excessive demands from Tehran during the nuclear negotiations and blocking efforts to reach an agreement on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

MojNews_ In a telephone conversation with Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani on Thursday, Amir Abdollahian underlined the need for the United States to stop excessive demands in the course of talks aimed at reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, and lifting unilateral sanctions against Tehran.

The foreign minister emphasized the Iran's will to reach a good, strong and lasting agreement.

The top diplomat noted that a realistic approach is required for finding a solution to the differences, and reaching a deal.  

The Qatari foreign minister, for his part, hailed Iran’s rational stance in dealing with the issue.

Iranian officials say the ball is in the US' court and the administration of President Joe Biden should assure Tehran that it will not repeat Donald Trump's past mistakes.

Speaking at weekly press conference on Wednesday in Tehran, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kana'ani said the ground is paved for reaching an agreement in the near future, but the parties are waiting for Washington to make the necessary political decisions to revive the accord.

"The way is paved for reaching the agreement, but the major issue is about the US which should make an independent, firm and unbiased dicision," he added.

The spokesman stated that a deal would be conceivable in the short term “if America looked at the matter through the prism of America’s national interests, not the Zionist regime’s".

Iran and the five remaining parties to the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), have held several rounds of negotiations in the Austrian capital of Vienna since April last year to restore the agreement, which was unilaterally abandoned by Trump in May 2018.

In quitting the agreement, Trump restored sanctions on Iran as part of what he called the “maximum pressure” campaign against the country. Those sanctions are being enforced to this day by the Biden administration, even though it has repeatedly acknowledged that the policy has been a mistake and a failure.

EU Deputy Foreign Policy Chief Enrique Mora coordinated indirect negotiations between Iran and the US in Qatar's Doha in late June aimed at resolving the differences hindering the revival of the 2015 agreement.

Iran has blasted the US for insisting on previous positions during the Doha talks, stressing that the path of diplomacy is still open. 

In a joint press conference with Al Thani in Tehran in early July, Amir Abdollahian blamed Washington for failure in arriving at a deal in Doha talks, and refuted the US claim that Iran’s negotiators  have raised demand irrelevant to the nuclear deal in the negotiations.

He added that the US reluctance to provide the needed guarantees for Iran's continued economic interests under the deal is the main cause of prolonged talks.
