E3 to present new proposal to Iran on JCPOA

TEHRAN, Feb. 05 (MNA) – European diplomats have said that three European parties to Iran nuclear deal have proposed a new plan to Iran on the agreement in exchange for economic benefits.

European and Western diplomats have said that three European signatories to the Iran nuclear deal or the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) have proposed a plan to Iran on the JCPOA in exchange for economic benefits, according to a report by Reuters.

The British news agency has not provide further details on the plan.

It is not yet clear whether the United States will accept the lifting of sanctions against Iran without Iran first adhering to the agreement, Reuters added.

Earlier in the day, Reuters quoted four informed sources as saying that the foreign ministers of the United States, Britain, France, and Germany would discuss how to revive the nuclear deal.

The sources, who asked to remain anonymous, did not say when the meeting would take place. Two of them said the meeting might take place this Friday, and two others announced it would be held next week.

The news came hours after US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said the administration of new President Joe Biden was in talks with France, Germany, and Britain to reach a common position on a nuclear deal with Iran.

Joe Biden government officials have announced in recent days that they intend to return the United States to the JCPOA, from which the United States unilaterally withdrew in May 2018 in violation of its obligations.

However, the new US administration has not yet announced its mechanism for returning to the nuclear deal. Members of the Biden team make ambiguous statements that they intend to use the return to the JCPOA as a basis for strengthening and prolonging the nuclear deal.
