The US assures that the nuclear deal “is not imminent or certain”, although it is prepared to make “difficult decisions”.

The United States gave assurances this Monday that a return to the 2015 nuclear deal “is not imminent or certain,” although it is prepared to make “difficult decisions,” according to US State Department spokesman Ned Price.

“There has been significant progress over the past few weeks but I want to make it clear that a deal is neither imminent nor certain. And indeed, we are preparing equally for mutual return and no-return scenarios for full implementation of the nuclear deal,” Price stresses.

On that note, Price has indicated at a press conference that they are willing to “take difficult decisions” to return to the nuclear deal, although he also added that they are “not in the practice of negotiating publicly”.

“We will not respond to specific claims about what sanctions we are willing or not willing to lift as part of a possible mutual return to nuclear deal compliance,” the US State Department spokesman said.

Talks in Vienna to reactivate the agreement, which have entered the final spurt, were “paused” on March 11 due to “external factors”, according to the European Union (EU) High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Common Security Policy, Josep Borell.

Iran has announced it is withdrawing its commitments on several points of the deal after the United States unilaterally withdrew from the pact in 2018, although Iranian authorities have defended that those moves can be reversed if the United States lifts sanctions and goes to the deal return consent.
