US Secretary of State Antony Blinken

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the US was "once again on the same page" on Iran and, referring to the US former administration approach against Tehran, Stated that the previous approach had failed.

Iran Press/America: Under US former President Donald Trump, the US left the deal under which world powers eased crippling economic sanctions, in return for limits on Iran's Nuclear activities.

Now the US is examining whether to rejoin the deal. President Biden said on Friday that the US must work with other major powers on Iran Nuclear Talks.

For its part, Iran says that despite an EU offer to broker talks with the US to revive the deal, the US "must act" first and lift sanctions.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told the BBC the US and its European partners were "once again on the same page" on Iran.

"President Biden has been clear for some time: if Iran returns to its obligations under the nuclear agreement, the United States will do the same thing," he said.

Asked by the BBC's Yalda Hakim how he would respond to accusations that the US had made concessions to Iran, he said the previous approach had failed.

"We have a policy in recent years of so-called 'maximum pressure' on Iran that has not produced results. In fact, the problem has gotten worse.

The Biden administration on Thursday took a major step, joining with European partners in offering to begin talks with the Iranians for the first time in four years.

Iran previously set a deadline on Feb. 21, vowing that if oil and banking sanctions are not lifted, it will expel the U.N.’s nuclear inspectors from the country.
