Germany (IP): Germany on Wednesday urged Iran’s prompt return to the nuclear negotiations in Vienna, despite the widespread violation of the UNSC Resolution 2231 by the United States and the lack of full compliance of the European Troika with their obligations under Iran's nuclear deal 2015.

Iran PressEurope: A day after the foreign ministers of Germany, France, and the UK, in a joint statement, expressed concern over Tehran’s decision to produce uranium metal from enriched uranium, Germany's Foreign Ministry spokesman Rainer Breul said: “With the (E3) declaration we wanted to express that we do not see Iran’s behavior as helpful. But we are ready to return to the negotiating table in Vienna and expect Iran to grab this offer without delay.”

Breul called on Iran to show the necessary “flexibility and pragmatism” to ensure a successful outcome of the negotiations.

“As I said, we are ready to return to the negotiating table, but that does not change the fact that what Iran is doing does not go well with the negotiations. But we are counting on continuing the negotiations. Iran knows what to do to make it a success,” the diplomat added.

Talks in Vienna between Iran and the five world powers (the US, UK, Russia, China, and France) plus Germany are aimed at finding ways at reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, which then-US President Donald Trump unilaterally abandoned in May 2018.

Under the accord, Tehran pledged to limit its nuclear activity to civilian purposes and in return, the Western powers would agree to drop their economic sanctions on Iran.

But in 2018, the US unilaterally withdrew from the agreement as part of its so-called “maximum pressure” policy and re-imposed tough sanctions on Iran, prompting Tehran to remedial measures under the deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman on Tuesday night, while reminding that Iran's scaling down and remedial measures in relation to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) have been done within the framework of this agreement, stressed that in case Washington and other parties return to their obligations under the JCPOA, then Iran would go back that way.
