The United States has expressed interest in a nuclear deal following the swearing-in of a new president in Iran. The United States has urged new President Ibrahim Rassi to revive an earlier nuclear deal. The United States has urged Reese to return to talks to revive the nuclear deal, the BBC reported.
The US request came after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signaled that he would try to end sanctions on the country. Tensions between the two countries escalated in 2018 when then-US President Donald Trump reiterated old sanctions on Iran, separating the United States from the nuclear deal.
Speaking at a swearing-in ceremony in Tehran yesterday, Raisi said he would support any diplomatic plan to end sanctions on Iran. He also called for the lifting of all US sanctions. Western nations, including the United States, have been pushing for Iran to suspend its nuclear program.
In 2015, an agreement reached between Iran and six other countries – the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia, and Germany – led to the lifting of some sanctions on Iran in exchange for halting some of its nuclear programs. But after Trump withdrew from the deal, Iran resumed its nuclear program.
