Tehran (IP)- The US is prepared to remove sanctions on Iran to resume compliance with the Iran nuclear deal, including those that are inconsistent with the 2015 pact, the US State Department said on Wednesday, without providing details.

Iran Press/America: “We are prepared to take the steps necessary to return to compliance with the JCPOA, including by lifting sanctions that are inconsistent with the JCPOA. I am not in a position here to give you chapter and verse on what those might be,” US State Department Spokesman Ned Price told reporters. He was referring to the pact formally called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Meanwhile, speaking on Thursday at the 10th Virtual D-8 Summit, President Rouhani said: "The US must return to the JCPOA, first, by lifting the sanctions and adopting practical arrangements, for that is the obligation of the same government that has reneged on the promise. The Islamic Republic of Iran will, but respond to US action by positive action."
