US warns Iran nuclear deal talks are in “critical phase” but says window for diplomacy “will never be closed” – RT World News

US Special Representative for Iran Robert Malley shared the US’s “growing concern” over Iran’s alleged nuclear advance, saying that talks to revive the agreement on the Iran nuclear power plant of 2015 were at a critical stage.

Speaking on a call with reporters on Monday, Malley outlined Washington’s approach to nuclear talks with Iran, as Western countries seek to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) after the then President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the deal in 2018.

Malley traveled to the Middle East last week to start talks on the issue in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar before traveling to Europe to meet with senior diplomats from most of the signatories to the agreement. initial, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Following his meetings, the US envoy asserted that the nuclear talks are “at a critical phase”, where Iran, according to Malley, must choose between continuing to delay talks, coming back to the table with unrealistic demands, or working with the signatories to revive the deal.

While saying that it is a “Growing concern about the pace and direction of Iran’s nuclear progress,” the diplomat repeated:“the window of diplomacy will never be closed.”

The comments come after Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Ali Bagheri Kani confirmed he would meet with European Union coordinator Enrique Mora on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Iranian President Abraham Raisi called on the United States to lift “all oppressive sanctions”, imposed after America withdrew from the deal, telling the United Nations that its recent nuclear activity is reversible if the White House ends measures imposed on Tehran.
