WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 08th April, 2021) White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Wednesday that the Biden administration and Iran have taken a constructive early step toward holding talks regarding Tehran‘s nuclear program.
“This is just a constructive early step, we’re at the early start of the process here,” Psaki said during a press briefing. “We expect these conversations to be difficult, we expect this to be a long process, we’re very much at just the beginning period.”
Earlier on Wednesday, President Hassan Rouhani said Iran sees the United States‘ signals of its readiness to join nuclear negotiations, and is ready to resume compliance with the obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action if all US sanctions are lifted.
Psaki said the US administration does not currently have a timeline for bringing Iran to the negotiating table for direct talks.
Russia’s permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, said that he discussed the resumption of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with US Special Envoy for Iran Robert Malley on Wednesday.
