Tehran(IP)- The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said: The purpose of the negotiations to lift the sanctions against Iran is to lift the sanctions forever so that the people of Iran can benefit from the economic situation.

Iran PressIran news: The initial nuclear deal signed in 2015 by Iran, the US, UK, France, and Germany – as well as Russia, China, and the EU – involved Tehran agreeing to certain restrictions on its nuclear industry in exchange for easing economic sanctions and other incentives. 

In 2018, however, it was torpedoed by the US under then-President Donald Trump, who withdrew from the agreement unilaterally, saying it was fundamentally flawed.

As a result, Iran started gradually reducing some of its commitments under the agreement, such as the level of enriched uranium it produces, which could potentially enable Tehran to build an atomic bomb. According to the Iranian authorities, however, this "is not on the agenda."  

The new round of negotiations to lift US sanctions against Iran started on August 4 in Vienna and ended on August 8.  In this round of negotiations, several proposals were made by Enrique Mora, the coordinator of the European Union, in the Vienna talks.
