Blinken on Iran nuclear deal: “We still think diplomacy is the best way forward”

The United States has urged Iran to resume nuclear talks in recent weeks after a hiatus caused by its government’s transition. While Tehran has indicated it will resume talks in Vienna before the end of November, the Biden administration has remained skeptical of Iran’s intentions.

“There is always a window through which Iran can return to talks, and we can return to mutual respect for the deal, and that would be the best outcome. But it really depends on Iran’s willingness to do it, ”Blinken said.

Blinken added that if Iran chooses not to “make a significant commitment and come back into compliance,” then the United States and the other countries in the agreement – Russia and China were also part of it. ‘2015 agreement – will examine’ all the options necessary to deal with this problem.

Asked in another interview Sunday – on CBS News’s “Face the Nation” – about what those other options might be and whether they might include military intervention, Blinken said “every option is on the table.”

“Iran, unfortunately, is moving aggressively with its program,” Blinken said. He added, “And that is why it was so important that we come together with our close partners in this effort. We are all very on the same page when it comes to the way forward. And we’ll see if Iran is serious.
