On Sunday, Tehran said they do not consider the time to be “suitable” to resume talks with Washington after the EU proposed an informal meeting over the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Foreign ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said in a statement: “Considering the recent positions and actions of the United States and the three European countries, (Iran) does not consider the time suitable to hold the informal meeting proposed by the European coordinator.
“There has still been no change in the US positions and behaviour yet”.
The spokesman then claimed the Biden administration has continued “Trump’s failed policy of maximum pressure”, and added: “America must end its illegal and unilateral sanctions and return to its (deal) commitments.
“This needs neither negotiations nor resolutions.”
