Iran FM says US must have courage to correct past mistakes

TEHRAN, Apr. 23 (MNA) – The United States’ current administration should have the audacity to rectify the White House’s past mistakes,” the minister told European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrel during a phone call on Friday.

“There are no doubts about the Iranian government’s will to reach a good, strong, and sustainable agreement [in Vienna],” Amir-Abdollahian said, Press TV reported.

“The White House should abandon its excessive demands and its indecision and walk down the path of realism and resolution [of the standing differences],” he added.

The top diplomat, meanwhile, expressed gratitude towards Borrell and his deputy Enrique Mora over their efforts to coordinate the talks.

Borrell, for his part, appreciated the Islamic Republic’s will for conclusion of an agreement and the various initiatives that the Islamic Republic has come up with to facilitate the prospect.

He, however, expressed disappointment concerning a mid-March-present pause that has been announced in the negotiations, urging fresh talks between the EU’s representative and Iran’s top negotiator Ali Bagheri-Kani.

In 2018, the incumbent US President Joe Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump took Washington out of a 2015 deal between the Islamic Republic and others. Trump also reimposed the illegal sanctions that the accord had lifted.
