West Blames Iran for Delaying Nuclear Deal, But Fault Lies With the US

Western powers continue to blame Iran for the slow progress of the negotiations to revive the nuclear deal even though the US withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018, and now the Biden administration refuses to lift all Trump-era sanctions.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken was in Paris Friday. Both Blinken and his French counterpart warned Iran that time was running out to revive the JCPOA. “There will come a point, yes, where it will be very hard to return back to the standards set by the JCPOA,” Blinken told reporters. “We haven’t reached that point — I can’t put a date on it — but it’s something that we’re conscious of.”

Blinken also said there are still “serious differences” between the US and Iran. After the sixth round of talks concluded on Sunday, an Iranian official said the two sides had agreed that the US would lift major oil and shipping sanctions and about 1,000 of the 1,500 sanctions imposed by President Trump. But Blinken’s State Department rejected the claim and made it clear that “nothing is agreed.”
