Foreign Minister reiterated the need for the complete lifting of US sanctions against the Iranian people.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, in a telephone conversation with his German counterpart Heiko Maas on Monday, reviewed the revival of the Iran nuclear deal officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran's top diplomat stressed the need for a complete and immediate lifting of US sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

German Foreign Ministry announced on its Twitter account that the call was initiated by Heiko Maas and the resumption of Vienna talks at the end of November was at the centerpiece of the conversation.

The message stipulated that Germany’s goal is that negotiations for the revival of JCPOA reach a conclusion so that the agreement can be fully implemented again soon, without mentioning the Western parties' non-compliance with the JCPOA, and which parties should take action to precisely implement the deal and lift oppressive and cruel sanctions.

The landmark nuclear deal was inked between Iran and six world major powers in the Austrian capital Vienna on July 14, 2015.

Former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA in May 2018 unilaterally and reimposed sanctions against Iran.

As part of the remedial measures taken by Iran amid the inactions of the other parties, Tehran halted voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol.

Iran has repeatedly stated that if other parties decided to implement their JCPOA obligations, steps to reduce the country’s JCPOA obligations will be reversible.
