The US State Department formally made an offer to negotiate with Iran

The US State Department announced, on Monday, that it had formally submitted a negotiating offer with Iran within the framework of the 5 + 1 group.

The US State Department said: We offered to negotiate with Iran within the framework of the 5 + 1 group, in accordance with the European plan, and we hope for a positive response.

On Sunday, March 7, 2021, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated that the only party that paid the price for preserving the nuclear agreement is Iran.

The Iranian president said that the only party that paid the price for preserving the nuclear deal was Iran, according to the Iranian IRNA agency.

Rouhani stressed the difficulty of continuing in this way, and all parties to the nuclear agreement must abide by Security Council Resolution 2231.

Rouhani announced his country’s readiness to work with international organizations to settle the region’s crises, believing that America had failed to impose the illegal embargo policy and to exert maximum pressure on the Iranian people.

Iran has so far refused to participate in an EU-mediated meeting between major powers and the United States on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal.

European sources said last week that Tehran had given positive signals about starting informal talks, after European powers canceled plans to criticize Tehran at the International Atomic Energy Agency.
