DUBAI, Sep. 4 (Reuters / EP) –
The Government of Iran will only reactivate its nuclear commitments under the agreement signed in 2015 if it obtains the credit line of 15,000 million dollars that France has offered for the coming months, as reported by an Iranian government official.
The French Executive has proposed to offer Iran about $ 15 billion in a line of credit until the end of 2019 if the Islamic Republic fully commits itself to the fulfillment of the commitments contemplated in the 2015 nuclear agreement, a maneuver that depends that the United States does not try to prevent the granting of loans.
“Our return to full compliance with the nuclear agreement is subject to the receipt of $ 15 billion for a period of four months. Otherwise, the process of reducing Iran's commitments will continue,” said the Iranian Foreign Minister, Abbas Araqchi, in statements to Fars.
“Either Europe has to buy oil from Iran or provide Iran with the equivalent of selling oil as a line of credit guaranteed by Iran's oil benefits, which would somehow be like a presale of crude oil,” Araqchi said. .
Iran's oil sales have plummeted since the United States withdrew from the nuclear agreement in 2018 and decided to reimpose sanctions against the Ayatollah regime. However, Araqchi has said that there are “serious disagreements about the calendar” of the future talks of the Islamic Republic with the rest of the countries that signed the 2015 agreement.
