Spokesman: Iran Security Council Rejects Draft Proposal to Restore Nuclear Deal

On Tuesday, a spokesman for Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Iran’s Supreme National Security Council rejected a draft agreement negotiated in Vienna indirectly with the US to restore the nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA.

Rouahni’s spokesman Ali Rabiee said the agreement included the lifting of most major sanctions and a US return to the JCPOA, although his claim was disputed by another Iranian spokesman for the Security Council who said no “agreement” had been made.

Rabiee said the Security Council rejected the draft proposal because it did not comply with a law passed by Iran’s parliament in December 2020 in response to the Israeli assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. The law required Iran to increase some uranium enrichment to 20 percent if the US does not lift sanctions on Iran to return to the JCPOA.
