Tehran (IP) - Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman stressed that there would not be any talks between Iran and the US, and all imposed sanctions on Iran must be removed.

Iran PressIran News: Attending his weekly press conference and in response to Iran Press question regarding Vienna talks on Wednesday, Saeed Khatibzadeh highlighted: "There won’t be any talks between Iran and the US and all sanctions must be removed based on resolution 2231 and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Actions (JCPOA).

Saeed Khatibzadeh also referred to the Vienna talks, adding: "What is happening in Vienna is not a nuclear negotiation, but a technical one to lift sanctions."

Asked on how Iran would verify the lifting of US sanctions, Khatibzadeh said it is not a difficult task if the US sincerely lifts the sanctions and returns to its commitments; if the US does, many can be verified. Iran should receive its oil money, shipping and the return of money of its exported products.

Khatibzadeh commented on the news published by Kyodo News on how Iran and the United States would return to JCPOA, noting: "Whenever there are negotiations at this level, the media publishes different reports for different purposes. This report is in this direction. Without going into details, Iran is seeking to lift the sanctions in one step and verify the lifting of the sanctions. We will use all mechanisms to achieve this goal within the framework of Iran's national interests."

Regarding the French ambassador's recent remarks, Khatibzadeh said: "If it were not for the strategic patience of this nation and the wise behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran, there would have been nothing left of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as a multilateral agreement due to clear violations of US and European obligations.”

Regarding the second question of IP about the incident in the Natanz nuclear site of Iran, he called it a “terrorist action.”

No casualties or contamination were reported in Natanz, he highlighted.

Iran reserves all its rights to act based on the UN charter since it is an anti-human action, Saeed Khatibzadeh added.
