Raisi criticized the United States for trampling on the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). He also noted that the International Atomic Energy Agency had repeatedly found that the United States had withdrawn from its commitments under the agreement while Iran had paid the price for respecting its commitments.

Raisi said Iran had been extremely flexible during negotiations to revive the JCPOA and the talks would not have advanced beyond the early days without Tehran’s flexibility. Iran remains “very serious” about the negotiations and is ready to resolve all issues as long as the rights of the Iranian people are respected, he added.

The JCPOA agreement was concluded in 2015 by Iran, China, France, Germany, Iran, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as the European Union. Former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the United States from the JCPOA in 2018 and reimposed comprehensive sanctions on Iran.
