New York (IP) – Iran's ambassador and permanent representative to the UN said there was no need to negotiate for Washington to return to its obligations under the JCPOA, stating that sanctions on Iran should be lifted within the next three months.

Iran PressAmerica: Majid Takht-Ravanchi noted that if sanctions on Iran were lifted within the next three months, Tehran would live up to its commitments.

He added that Iran's actions after Washington's illegal withdrawal from the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) were not to escalate tensions.

Former US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Nuclear Deal on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, violating Washington's commitments under the JCPOA and announced the re-imposition of sanctions on Iran.

Iran fully complied with its obligations under the Nuclear Deal for one more year after the US illegal withdrawal from the JCPOA, giving European countries a chance to live up to their commitments.

One year after European governments failed to deliver on their promises, Tehran announced that it would gradually reduce its obligations under Articles 26 and 36 of the agreement to strike a balance between its obligations and its rights.
