Removal of all bans, its verification a public demand: Raisi

TEHRAN, Apr. 26 (MNA) – The head of the Iranian Judiciary Ebrahim Raisi said the Iranian people want the removal of all sanctions altogether, warning negotiators in the ongoing nuclear talks in Vienna against the other side's deception.

Speaking in a session of the Judiciary's Supreme Council, Ebrahim Reisi recalled the previous attempts against the Iranian nation including the Operation Eagle Claw, known as Operation Tabas in April 1980 during the early years of the Islamic Revolution and warned the Iranian diplomatic team in the ongoing nuclear talks in the Austrain capital of Vienna against the other side's deceptive tactics.

The Judiciary chief said that removal of all sanctions is public demand and warned against the US administration's calls for dividing the sanctions on Iran into different groups of JCPOA-related or non-JCPOA related sanctions.

He called on the diplomats against the prolonged talks and wasting the time by the other side.

Tehran is engaged in talks with the remaining signatories to the Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) namely China, Russia, and the three major European countries of Britain, Germany and France in a bid to revive the nuclear deal in the Austrian capital of Vienna. The United States is not present as Iran has refused to directly talk with the new US administration that still continues illegal Trump-era sanctions against the Iranian nation. 

Despite early promises during his presidential campaign, US President Joe Biden has not returned his country to the deal so far. By doing so, the Biden administration is following in the Trump administration's footsteps and continues to stick to the illegal sanctions on Iran in violation of the nuclear deal. Washington has set illegitimate preconditions for returning to the JCPOA which are strongly rejected by Iran.

After the US exit from the world powers' nuclear deal with Iran in May 2018 and imposing the unprecedented sanctions on the Iranian nation which was followed by the indifference of the European parties to the need for compensating Iran's losses as a result of the US violations of the international accord, Iran started reducing its JCPOA commitments in five steps and finally suspended voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol on February 22. Tehran recently started 60% enrichment after an "act of sabotage" done reportedly carried out by the Israeli regime on one of its nuclear sites in Natanz. The JCPOA Paragraph 36 allows Iran to diminish its abidance in the case of violations of the deal by other parties.

Iran has vowed that it will change course and will return immediately to its JCPOA commitments as soon as other parties, most notably the Europeans, abide by the provisions of the accord.
