Thursday, 04. March 2021 14:13

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov expressed on Thursday Moscow's hopes of reviving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in its original form "in the immediate future" and offered "all kinds of assistance in reaching agreements on that score."

"Tehran has repeatedly spoken in favor of its willingness to completely unfreeze all of the plan of action's provisions that it had suspended as soon as the forfeited balance of interests is restored," he told Russkaya Mysl. "However, not everything here depends on us or the European participants. The [United States President Joe] Biden administration's stance is of key significance."

Lavrov thus reaffirmed his previous comments Russia wanted the US to return to the Iran Nuclear Deal.
